[The Hankyoreh, October 6 2007] N. Korean leader calls himself 'Internet expert'

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il called himself an "Internet expert" during his summit talks with South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun in Pyongyang on Wednesday, according to the South's summit delegates.

Kim allegedly made the remark as Roh suggested opening the Internet at the South-invested industrial park in the North's border town of Kaesong, said the delegates.

"At the summit talks, Roh stressed the need to help facilitate business operations of South Korean firms operating at the Kaesong industrial park by opening Internet service there. But Kim turned down Roh's offer," said a delegate, asking to remain anonymous.
