Mentioning a development plan for the North’s Najin Port, which is located close to the North Korea-Russia border and designated as a special economic zone for international enterprises, Cha said there has been no agreement between the North and China on the issue, saying that it would be a great opportunity to develop the port in cooperation with the South. Members of the South Korea economic delegation visiting Pyongyang met with their North Korean counterparts and discussed ways to boost inter-Korean economic cooperation in light industries, railroads, roads, glass, and automobiles, sources said.
