Understanding the President Roh Northern Limit Line row

Cooperation in the West Sea could bring opportunities, challenges for two Koreas

Recent attention on former South Korean president Roh Moo-Hyun's statements at the 2007 inter-Korean summit over the past few months, which included the West Sea and NLL (Northern Limit Line) among other topics, has prompted a rapid and bitter reaction from the two main political parties in South Korea.

The governing Saenuri Party accused the Democratic Party (DP) of lying, while the DP accused their governing counterparts of using the revelations to divert attention away from accusations that the National Intelligence Service interfered in the 2012 presidential election.
