A customs officer checks as a vehicle of a South Korean company carrying products made in inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea, arrives at the customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) office, just south of the demilitarized zone separating the North from South Korea in Paju, north of Seoul April 27, 2013. On Friday, Pyongyang rejected a call for formal talks to end a standoff that forced operations at the joint industrial complex to be halted. South Korea in turn said it would pull out all its remaining workers from Kaesong. Of the 175 remaining South Korean workers, 126 workers left the factory zone on Saturday. The rest are scheduled to return on Monday. REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: MILITARY POLITICS BUSINESS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY TRANSPORT)

South Korea's seven remaining employees who work at an inter-Korean complex inside North Korea returned home on Friday, according to local media. South Korea has offered 300 billion won ($273.9 million) in special loans to companies affected by Pyongyang's decision last month to close a jointly run industrial zone in North Korea, a government official said on Thursday.

Amphibious assault vehicles of the South Korean Marine Corps throw smoke bombs as they move to land on shore during a U.S.-South Korea joint landing operation drill in Pohang, about 370 km (230 miles) southeast of Seoul, April 26, 2013. The drill is part of the two countries' annual military training called Foal Eagle, which began on March 1 and runs until April 30. Tension has been fuelled by North Korean anger over the imposition of U.N. sanctions after its last nuclear arms test in February. The two Koreas have been technically in a state of war since a truce that ended their 1950-53 conflict. REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: MILITARY POLITICS MARITIME)

North Korea demanded on Tuesday that it be recognised as a nuclear weapons state, rejecting a U.S. condition that it agree to give up its nuclear arms programme before talks can begin. After weeks of tension on the Korean peninsula, including North Korean threats of nuclear war, the North has in recent days begun to at least talk about dialogue in response to calls for talks from both the United States and South Korea.
