Koreas to remove border propaganda signs
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticle.asp?xfile=da...

SEOUL - North and South Korea will remove propaganda signs dotting hills where their armies have faced off for decades, military officers said on Wednesday after rare talks aimed at building trust across one of worlds most fortified borders.

Military officers met at the Panmunjum truce village within the Demilitarised Zone and reached the agreement during talks to ease tensions between the armies that are still technically at war.

The discussions were expected to only focus on setting the stage for a meeting of military generals from the two sides, but instead resulted in pushing forward the deal to remove the signs that was first agreed to last year but suspended due to strained ties, South Koreas Defence Ministry said.

The two sides also agreed to establish liaison offices for contact between their navies to avert armed conflict, ministry officials said.

1. This is a good sign. No pun intended
This propaganda sign stuff seems kind of childish to me anyway. Time to grow up boys.
