Giant speakers positioned along the North Korean border which blast out South Korean news, music and pro-democracy messages have fallen silent
Reining in its propaganda against the secretive regime is another indication that South Korea is serious about normalising relations with the North.
The speakers that have been belting out propaganda messages against the North since 1963 have ceased broadcasting. This is in a bid to ease military tensions ahead of a meeting between the leaders of the two nations.
Kim Jong-un will meet President Moon Jae-in of South Korea on Friday, marking the first meeting between leaders of the two Koreas in more than a decade.
Considering that North Korea has also used large banks of speakers to send its own messages across the border, it remains to be seen whether it will follow the lead of the South.
South Korea has not commented on whether it will restart broadcasts following the leaders’ meeting.
