On both sides of the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, troops are withdrawing and installations are coming down.
Talks between the two Koreas in September resulted in both parties agreeing to numerous concessions. These include that each side dismantle or disarm 11 guard posts by the end of this month, disarming the shared village of Panmunjom and clearing out mines from specifies DMZ areas.
While the acts favor a coming to terms, many fear that too much is being granted to North Korea when the North as demonstrated little results in return.
That being said, South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon acknowledged that criticism and in response stated that the South would not pursue economic cooperation with the North until “significant progress” on denuclearization was achieved.
