South Korean military removes landmines along fortified border

South Korea’s military removed landmines along their heavily fortified border, in a pact to reduce tension and build trust on the divided peninsula. The project which kicked off were agreed during last month’s summit in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in. In a statement, the ministry said the two sides agreed to remove all landmines in the so-called Joint Security Area in Panmunjom within the next 20 days, with military engineers performing the hazardous task on the South Korean side. The deal also provides for removal of guard posts and weapons from the JSA to follow the removal of the mines, with the troops remaining there to be left unarmed.
