The United Nations Command says it is in talks to resume civilian tours to the Joint Security Area along the inter-Korean border.

In a social media post Monday, the U.S.-led command said it began discussions on the matter after the South Korean government lowered social distancing to Level 2 for the capital region over the weekend.

The UNC said it will come up with precautionary measures to curb COVID-19 risks and ensure the safety of the tours, adding that reopening details will soon be announced.

The tours to the truce village of Panmunjom were suspended on December 19, as South Korea was nearing the peak of its third wave of coronavirus infections.
