SEOUL, South Korea — Delegates from North and South Korea have arrived at their border for working-level talks on a stalled joint factory park.

The Kaesong industrial zone was the centerpiece of inter-Korean projects hatched during a previous era of rapprochement, but it was closed in April as tensions rose between the rivals.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said Saturday that the delegates at the talks on the North Korean side of a border village will discuss retrieving products that South Korean managers left behind at the industrial complex in North Korea and inspecting the facilities. They will also discuss restarting work at the park.

The talks come after the Koreas last month called off what would have been the first senior-level meeting in years on protocol disagreement.
