SEOUL, August 10. /TASS/. South Korea has resumed its loudspeaker broadcasting propaganda campaign along the border with North Korea as a retaliation step for Pyongyang’s recent provocation when two South Korean servicemen were wounded by a North Korean mine in the demilitarized zone, South Korea’s defence ministry said on Monday.
"As part of retaliation for North Korea's illegal provocation, our military will partly carry out loudspeaker broadcasting along the military demarcation line as the first step," the ministry said, adding that this decision was in conformity with its pledge to make North Korea pay the harsh cost for the provocation.
South Korea suspended its psychological warfare programme against North Korea 11 years ago, when relations between the two Koreas showed signs of improvements. However following North Korea’s torpedoing the South Korean Cheonan corvette in 2010 border-area facilities for loudspeaker broadcasting were reinstalled.
The current campaign will feature loudspeaker messages telling the latest news in South Korea and explaining the illegality of North Korea's provocation of August 4.
On August 4, two South Korean patrol servicemen were badly wounded in a landmine explosion on the souther side of the demilitarized zone in Paju, Gyeonggi Province. Both lost one leg.
The two Koreas have been foes since the 1950-1953 Korean War, which ended in a truce. Until today, they have no peace treaty.
