Seoul asking activists to stop sending anti-North leaflets over DMZ: MOU

Defiant NGOs insist controversial information dissemination efforts will continue, however

The South Korean government has asked activist groups to refrain from using balloons to send anti-regime leaflets into North Korea, a Ministry of Unification (MOU) official told media on Tuesday.

The move follows the release of the Panmunjom Declaration on Friday, which saw, among other things, the two Koreas agree to cease "broadcasting through loudspeakers and distribution of leaflets."
