S. Korea to resume propaganda broadcast in border areas

07-16-2010 14:23 BJT

SEOUL, July 16 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's Defense Ministry said Friday it will resume anti-Pyongyang propaganda broadcast along the heavily fortified border with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), local media reported.

The ministry said it has installed 11 propaganda loudspeakers and has completed preparations for sending more than 1 million propaganda leaflets into the DPRK, according to Yonhap News Agency.

Seoul's decision to restart broadcasts after six years of hiatus came as part of the punitive measures it has taken against Pyongyang for its alleged sinking in late March of a South Korean warship, which killed 46 sailors.

Pyongyang, for its part, recently threatened to open fire at the loudspeakers if they start blaring propaganda into the country.
