N. Korea Extends Deadline for Wage Payment to Friday

North Korea has extended the deadline for wage payment for its workers at the Gaeseong Industrial Complex to Friday.

An official at the complex told KBS that the firms were notified by the North Monday afternoon that it extended the deadline for wage payment for March.

The North's Central Special Zone Development Guidance General Bureau is reported to have notified that it has made the decision for South Korean firms' convenience and it will not collect arrears for the extended period.

With the decision, South and North Korean authorities are expected to seek negotiations on the wage issue until Friday.

Meanwhile, representatives of South Korean firms operating at the complex returned home around 4 p.m. on Monday after visiting Gaeseong in the morning.
