Regarding distribution of leaflets toward
June 4, 2020
o The ROKG carried out measures to suspend the act of flying
leaflets to the North on numerous occasions, taking note that such
action can raise tensions in the border area.
- A considerable amount of the distributed leaflets have actually
been found in the South, thus polluting the environment and imposing
burden on border area residents to collect these wastes. This
exacerbates the living conditions of the residents.
- Such action of distributing leaflets should be ceased as it not
only poses a risk to the lives and property of our nationals living in
the border area, but also hinders inter-Korean quarantine cooperation.
o Taking the circumstances comprehensively, the ROKG has been
reviewing effective improvement plans that will fundamentally resolve
tension-building activities in the border area.
