N. KOREA LEADER VISITS SKI RESORT PET PROJECT

0

SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited a ski resort under construction in the northeast of the country to check on the progress of his pet project, state media reported on Sunday, just days after he had his uncle executed. The Masik Pass Ski Resort made headlines in August when Switzerland blocked a $7.6 million sale of ski lifts to Pyongyang, calling it a “propaganda project” for the regime. Featuring 110 kilometers of multi-level ski runs, a hotel, heliport and cable cars, the resort has been heavily promoted since Kim visited it in June and called for construction to be completed by the end of the year.
