 A top North Korea official has visited a mountain resort that had been jointly run with rival South Korea and discussed efforts to unilaterally rebuild it into a cultural resort envied by the whole world, state media reported on Sunday.

Some experts say North Korea may be putting pressure on South Korea in order to benefit from an economic engagement as the pandemic is aggravating North Korean economic woes.
During a trip to the Diamond Mountain resort, Premier Kim Tok Hun stressed the need to build the tourist area our own way in which national character and modernity are combined while in good harmony with the natural scenery," the Korean Central News Agency reported.
