South Korea Dismantles Propaganda Loudspeakers in Latest Step Toward Peace

HeadlineMay 01, 2018

North and South Korea are continuing to take historic steps toward peace. On Monday, the South Korean military began to dismantle loudspeakers that have been blaring propaganda into the North since 2016. North Korea has announced it will shift its clocks forward 30 minutes to align with South Korea’s time zone. South Korean leader Moon Jae-in has also convinced North Korea’s Kim Jong-un to hold an upcoming summit with President Trump at the Demilitarized Zone, known as the DMZ. The diplomatic breakthroughs come after Friday’s landmark summit between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in, during which the two leaders pledged to denuclearize the peninsula and work to formally end the Korean War.
