Specifics concerning the amount of money to be loaned to the KNTO from the government's ''Fund for South-North Exchange
and Cooperation'' and conditions attached to the loans will be determined later after the issue is reported to the National Assembly, it said.
"Up until now, the government has been at the center of South-North exchanges
, but many have long suggested that inter-Korean exchanges would become much more stabilized when the parliament becomes a part of such efforts," Im said of the reason for inviting the parliamentary leaders to the inter-Korean summit.
"(We) will maintain close cooperation with the international community, including the US and the UN, lest there be a problem related to sanctions on North Korea in the process of South-North exchanges
," it said.
