N. Korea calls S. Korean Kaesong company heads for meeting Updated: 2015-03-17 16:25:47 KST

In an unprecedented move, North Korea asked the heads of South Korean companies operating at the inter-Korean industrial complex in Kaesong to gather for a meeting that was scheduled for earlier in the day.
No specifics about the meeting were announced and the South Korean government asked the company heads. not to respond to Pyongyang's call.
Instead, the South Korean government held a meeting in Seoul this afternoon with most of the leaders of companies from the complex.
Seoul discussed possible countermeasures and urged the leaders not to abide by Pyongyang's one-sided demands.
Watchers believe the meeting was Pyongyang's way of pressuring the South Korean companies to go along with its unilateral decision to raise wages for its workers from a little over 70 U.S. dollars to 74 dollars a month and revise labor regulations.
