Two Koreas to destroy 22 guard posts along demilitarized zone

Process projected to be complete by end of next month, Seoul says

The North and South Korean militaries on Friday agreed to “demolish” 22 guard posts in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) by the end of November, the ROK Ministry of National Defense (MND) announced in a statement to press.

The agreement followed several hours of general-level military talks on the northern side of Panmunjom between 1000 and 1500 local time - the third of their kind this year.
