Regarding distribution of leaflets toward the North


Regarding distribution of leaflets toward the North

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.
