N. Korea to South: Don't stop tourism project

November 1, 2006 11:20

North Korea warned South Korea on Wednesday not to tamper with an inter-Korean tourism project, slamming the idea that Seoul might stop paying cash tour fees to the North as part of UN sanctions over its recent nuclear test. The warning from the North's Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, a ruling Workers' Party organ, came as Pyongyang steps up pressure on Seoul not to join the international move to slap sanctions on the North for its October 9 nuclear test. The North agreed Tuesday to return to arms talks, but other countries have said UN Security Council sanctions will remain in place until the North abandons its nuclear program.
