South Korea mulls lifting some N Korea sanctions


South Korea is reviewing the possibility of lifting some domestic sanctions against North Korea, according to comments made by its foreign minister at an audit hearing.
Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha told lawmakers on Wednesday in Seoul it was consulting with other related authorities on whether to lift sanctions imposed on North Korea after the March 2010 sinking of South Korean naval ship Cheonan. The May 24, 2010 sanctions, also known as 5.24, banned South Koreans from travelling to and trading with North Korea as well as suspending aid to North Korea. Kang made the comment in response to a lawmakers’ question about the sanctions.
