South Korea reports that North Korea has begun to remove speakers from the border
North Korea has begun to take down speakers that have been used to send propaganda at the border with South Korea, announced South Korea’s defense department.
The dismantling began Tuesday, a day after South Korea announced that the country will do the same on its side of the border. The speakers in South Korea have been used for music, news and negative information about North Korea, and it is expected that the dismantling will also begin today.
These are among the first small practical measures taken to bring about reconciliation between the two countries on the Korean Peninsula after Friday’s summit, reports the news agency Reuters.
As a sign of goodwill before the meeting, South Korea turned off its speakers.
North Korea also announced on Monday that the country will set its bells for half an hour so that the time zones in the two countries would be equal.
