South Korean President Moon Jae-in and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un took an unprecedented step towards peace on the Korean peninsula after riding a gondola together to the top of Masikryong Ski Resort in North Korea.
The Doppelmayr gondola is thought to have violated UN luxury goods sanctions back when it was aquired by the North between 2014-2015 but now it has become a symbol or improving relations between the longtime fueding countries.
“The gondola system, including 45 cars and other required mechanisms, was purchased used from an unknown source – likely in China – after being removed from the Austrian Ischgl Silvretta resort in 2014.
An NK Pro investigation found that another Austrian firm called Pro-Alpin bought the system from the Ischgl resort and dismantled it in May 2014, before selling it to a Chinese buyer whose identity the project manager for the company Birgit Seemann would not disclose at the time.” – nknews.org
