South Korean government has refused to meet North Korea's demands for reviving suspended operations at a joint industrial complex amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Korea's National Defense Commission said Sunday that restarting the complex would require the South to end its "hostile acts and military provocations."

The commission led by North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, has also asked Seoul to cancel an upcoming military drill with Washington scheduled for August.

The South’s Unification Ministry that handles inter-Korean affairs, said North Korea’s demands are incomprehensible and unfair.
 
"The North's demand, as you probably know, is completely incomprehensible and unfair," Kim Hyung-seok, spokesman for Seoul's Unification Ministry, told reporters on Monday, adding, "We urge the North again ... to come forward for dialogue instead of making such unfair demands."
