S Korea Reviewing Pyongyang Decision to Revise Kaesong Workers’ Wages
The South Korean government proposed on Friday to hold talks with North Korea about the Kaesong Industrial Complex on March 13.

The news comes three days after the North decided unilaterally to raise wages for its workers at Kaesong by 5.18 percent.

The unification ministry of South Korea also accused Pyongyang of creating obstacles to develop the joint venture.

"If the North has a will for the development of the Kaesong Industrial Complex, it should stop unilateral acts and resolve pending problems through consultations between authorities," said unification ministry spokesman Lim Byeong-cheol.

Created in 2004, the complex includes 120 South Korean firms, which employ over 53,000 North Korean workers.
