The U.S. reportedly offered a plan to help North Korea build a tourist area in its country as part of denuclearization talks in Stockholm earlier this month.
South Korean newspaper Hankook Ilbo reported that the U.S. proposed plans for developing the Kalma area. The paper didn’t say how the North Korean delegation responded to the idea, according to Bloomberg.
Bloomberg noted that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been trying to get a resort project completed in the Wonsan-Kalma coastal area for awhile. North Korean politician Pak Pong Ju reportedly visited the area in August to encourage workers to make the area “a scenic spot” on the east coast. Talks between the U.S. and North Korea in Sweden ended this month with little progress.
