Cross-Border Committee to Resume Kaesong Talks

A joint North and South Korean committee in charge of the Kaesong Industrial Complex is to meet again on Thursday, for the fifth time since it was created when the complex reopened last year.

A Unification Ministry here on Tuesday said North Korea proposed the meeting on Monday.

The quarterly meetings have been suspended since December 2013, due to heightened tensions between the two sides. 

South Korea wants to discuss a range of issues, including mobile phone coverage, internet connections and setting up an arbitration committee.

North Korea is believed to be much more interested in taxing the businesses in the complex.
