Seoul, June 23 (TIWN) North Korea is reinstalling propaganda loudspeakers in regions along the inter-Korean border after removing them under a 2018 summit agreement with South Korea, military officials said here on Monday.

 After the summit between President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on April 27, 2018, the two Koreas agreed to halt all hostile acts against each other and eliminate their means, including broadcasting through loudspeakers and distribution of leaflets, reports Yonhap News Agency.

According to the authorities, North Korea has been detected setting up loudspeakers again "in multiple places" inside the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) from around Sunday.
 
It had dismantled dozens of loudspeakers in around 40 areas near the tense border in a first action to follow up on the Panmunjom Declaration.
 
"Such moves were spotted in more than 10 regions, which have taken place simultaneously," an official of South Korea''s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
 
"We are closely monitoring the North''s moves to wage psychological warfare. We maintain a tight readiness posture to properly respond to any eventualities," he said.
