In connection with the mounting tension in the Korean peninsula, the Philippine government has delayed by 7 days the sending off of 50 workers to South Korea, according to a foreign affairs official on Saturday.
It is more prudent to defer departure until such time that the tension between the two in-conflict countries subsides.
An employment agreement exists between the Philippines and South Korea.
It was earlier reported that South Korea provides better income for factory workers.
There is an estimated 46,000 Filipino workers in South Korea mostly employed in the factories, service industries and construction companies.
The Philippines is also asking Japan for a temporary shelter for Filipino workers in South Korea if conditions warrant their evacuation.
