Seoul and Pyongyang inspected roads in North Korea in a rushed manner in December just five days prior to a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for their joint rail and road connection project.

[Soundbite] Lee Eugene(Deputy spokeswoman, Unification Ministry (Dec. 21)) : "The onsite inspection as part of working-level discussions will be held without the use of survey equipment."

During that time, a dozen South Korean officials inspected a 100 kilometer section road over three days without using equipment. Therefore, an additional survey is necessary. The two sides held a working-level meeting at the Joint Liaison Office in the North Korean border city of Gaeseong on January 31st and discussed how to proceed with the joint survey. Seoul and Pyongyang exchanged documents containing their respective road-related standards. The two sides also discussed a plan by North Korean officials to inspect roads in the South and other personnel exchanges on road cooperation. It's also confirmed on January 29th the UN Security Council sanctions committee on North Korea granted a sanctions exemption for the joint road inspection. Following these developments, details of the survey will materialize in the coming days including the timetable and size of the inspection team. Expectations are rising on expanded cross-border cooperation which has been progressing at a lackluster speed due to global sanctions. All this comes as Pyongyang and Washington are expected to hold working-level negotiations on their second summit.
