June 14, 2004
South Korea is set to bring a complete halt on late Monday to propaganda broadcasts that have gone on for 42 years along the demilitarized zone.
The Defense Ministry said it would air its final farewell broadcast of "Sound of Freedom" through its loudspeakers along the demilitarized zone for ten minutes up to midnight Monday, in accordance with recent agreements aimed at easing military tensions with North Korea.
The ministry said the ten-minute special broadcast would also feature wishes for the well-being of both South and North Korean soldiers.
