South Korea and the Democratic People' s Republic of Korea (DPRK) have agreed to hold working-level talks on Saturday at the truce village of Panmunjeom to discuss issues related to the suspended Kaesong industrial complex, South Korea' s unification ministry said Thursday.

As of 8:25 p.m. local time, the two Koreas agreed to hold such talks from 10 a.m. on Saturday at Panmunjeom, the Ministry of Unification said by phone.

Pyongyang accepted Seoul's dialogue offer made earlier in the day after some wrangling over the venues. South Korea proposed the talks to be held at Panmunjeom, but the DPRK made another counterproposal to meet at Kaesong. Then, Seoul made a counteroffer of holding the talks at inter-Korean transit offices.
