SEOUL, June 14. /TASS/. The Republic of Korea has fortified its border along the 38th parallel, which is a border with the North Korea, the Yonhap news agency reported on Sunday.
North Korea has been planting anti-personnel mines alongside the inter-Korean border for the past couple of months to prevent North Korean soldiers from fleeing to South Korea, a South Korean official told the agency.
"North Korean troops seem to have collected some military information near the western, middle and eastern fronts of the Military Demarcation Line for the past two months, the official told Yonhap News Agency on condition of anonymity, adding that South Korea has beefed up its defense against a possible southward intrusion."
"North Korean soldiers, mostly in groups of up to 20, are also checking signposts marking the MDL and re-erecting any that have collapsed.
"There are nearly 1,300 such signs lining the border, spaced out between 200-300 meters from one another," the agency wrote.
