Such an initiative was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, Kang Kyung-hwa, according to the Yonhap agency. & nbsp;

The South Korean government adopted the main package of sanctions in 2010 after the torpedoing of the South Korean corvette Cheonan. According to Seoul, the ship was sunk as a result of the aggressive actions of North Korean sailors.
At present, despite the emerging thaw in inter-Korean relations, the Republic of Korea continues to adhere to previously adopted restrictions.
Nevertheless, according to Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-hwa, who spoke to parliamentarians today, the country's government is now exploring the possibility of easing sanctions pressure on its northern neighbor.

Another reason that may contribute to the lifting of the sanctions regime is Seoul's unwillingness to duplicate the international restrictions imposed earlier by the UN Security Council, the diplomat specified.
According to Yonhap, the opposition criticizes such a decision, since the lifting of sanctions before Pyongyang officially recognizes the fact of the attack on the South Korean cruiser may "offend the memory of the dead sailors."
