South Korea has proposed talks with North Korea on re-opening a stalled joint industrial complex in the North.
Seoul's Unification Ministry suggested the low-level talks be held Saturday at the Panmunjom truce village on the two countries' border.
The Kaesong industrial complex has been closed since April, when it fell victim to weeks of heightened inter-Korean tension.
North Korea has not responded to the proposal. But on Wednesday, Pyongyang said it would allow South Korean business people to inspect their equipment at the facility.
The two Koreas tried to hold talks aimed at re-opening Kaesong last month, but they were canceled following a disagreement over who would represent each side.
The factory was an important source of revenue for North Korea and served as one of the last remaining signs of cooperation between Seoul and Pyongyang.
