North Korea abruptly cancels visit by UN chief

North Korean workers sew clothes in a factory owned by a South Korean company at the Joint Industrial Park in Kaesong just a few hundred metres north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two KoreasNorth Korea on Wednesday cancelled an invitation to UN chief Ban Ki-moon to visit an industrial zone inside the isolated state, in an abrupt move that Ban deplored as “deeply regrettable”. The decision comes after Ban this week urged North Korea to avoid any actions that might escalate military tensions, after it successfully test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). Ban said that via “diplomatic channels”, North Korea had rescinded its invitation to the Kaesong zone, which is a key earner for the cash-strapped state but a perennial source of tension with South Korea.
