In an attempt to attract tourists to their country, North Korea has reportedly asked the US to invest in its tourism sector in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. According to the newspaper Donga Ilbo, the deputy chairman of the Workers' Party, Kim Yong-chol, who visited Donald Trump in the White House ahead of the US president’s planned meeting with Kim Jong-un, requested funding to build a casino and other tourist sites in the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist zone.
