North, South Korea begin dismantling border loudspeakers

Seoul, May 1: North and South Korea on Tuesday began dismantling propaganda speakers along their border as part of an agreement between the leaders of two countries during a historical summit last month. South Korean officials removed the loudspeakers it had installed in Paju to wage psychological warfare on the North, Efe news reported. Seoul had decided to halt its propaganda broadcasts, containing messages and news against the North Korean regime as well as K-pop music, as a conciliatory gesture in the run-up to the summit. South Korea had speakers installed at around 40 points in the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas. (IANS)
