South Korea resolves border crisis with North

South Korea has stopped broadcasting anti-Pyongyang propaganda on the border, in a deal with North Korea, allowing the two countries to pull back from the brink of a potential military conflict.

National Security Adviser to South Korea, Kim Kwan-jin said the move, which was part of a deal following marathon talks, had the two countries agreeing to work towards a resumption of reunions next month for families separated by the 1950-1953 Korean War.

Pyongyang expressed regrets that two South Korean soldiers were maimed in a recent land mine blast which Seoul blamed on the North.

However, the anti-Pyongyang propaganda included broadcasts with news from South Korea, Korean pop songs as well as other materials deemed harmful to the North Korean state.
