North and South Korea talks on joint factory complex

North and South Korea have agreed to hold talks on re-opening a jointly-run factory complex in the North.

North Korea said it was open to holding talks with South Korea on re-opening the Kaesong complex, which was shut in April. Pyongyang's statement was carried by state media and was its first public response to Seoul's proposal in April to discuss the factory complex.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said in a text message that it "positively accepts" the North Korean announcement and added that it would announce the date and agenda of talks later.
