WASHINGTON, March 7 (Yonhap) -- The United States is not considering sanctions exemptions for the resumption of key economic projects between the Koreas, a senior U.S. official said Thursday.

The State Department official was asked during a background briefing with reporters whether the U.S. was considering exemptions for the inter-Korean industrial complex in North Korea's border city of Kaesong and tours to the North's Mount Kumgang.

"No," he said without elaborating.

The two projects are central to South Korea's vision to assist North Korea's denuclearization through economic incentives.
