    South Korean President Park Geun-hye said that the question of closing down the Kaesong industrial park, developed jointly by Seoul and Pyongyang, in the wake of North Korea’s recent nuclear test depends on the actions of the North Korean leadership.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — The question of closing down the Kaesong industrial park, developed jointly by Seoul and Pyongyang, in the wake of North Korea’s recent nuclear test depends on the actions of the North Korean leadership, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said Wednesday.

    On January 6, Pyongyang claimed it had carried out a hydrogen bomb test. In response, Seoul restricted access to the industrial park.

    "The question of carrying out additional measures depends entirely on North Korea," the South Korean leader said during a press conference.
