North Korean delegates at cross-border military talks in the truce village of Panmunjom last Thursday offered to move their long-range artillery pieces from the military demarcation line to rear areas, a source said Sunday.
The Defense Ministry denied it, but the source said, "The North Korean delegates brought it up first as a matter of principle." This would go a long way toward reducing military tensions. It is not known why the North made the offer or what it expects in return.
The North has deployed about 1,000 artillery guns near the MDL. Some 330 are trained on the Seoul region, including six battalions of 170-mm self-propelled artillery guns with a range of 54 km and some 10 battalions of 240-mm multiple rocket launchers with a range of 60 km.
The launchers are hidden in tunnels in ordinary times but can be moved out quickly to fire shells. A diplomatic source said, "This may be an attempt to maintain the momentum of the U.S.-North Korea summit."
But the North is unlikely to have attached no conditions. It probably demanded that South Korea and the U.S. also move their frontline artillery guns to rear areas....

“Children in cages”
[ Let’s see the media/democrats explain this away. ]
Oh they have a perfectly-logical explanation. Perfectly-logical to them.
Putin is making all of this happen. I wish I were joking.
If true that’s big.
Even if it’s 20 clicks.
Something to do with the proposed gas pipeline through North Korea?
Boom, now we have things happening
If the artillery is removed and does not come back, that is really good for everybody. We can't be 100% sure, but it sounds really good.
According to the liberals, who know everything, I might add, everything President Trump does is ordered by Putin.
Even if President Trump opposes Russia, it is at the orders of Putin.
Again, I wish I were joking. These people are insane.
Obama sure earned that second peace prize he’s going to get for this!
“North Korea hasn’t promised anything new here.”
Do you really think the DemonRats and MSM-13 propagandists won’t say something just like that?
So what the leftist globalists are saying is that it’s a horrible thing for a country like Russia to want to have a peaceful neighbor that would consume its oil products via a free trade. Oh the humanity!
You don't need to explain what you don't report or acknowledge.
NOW we’re talking!
This was what I was waiting for. We should meet this with an offer to bail on the DMZ. Do it at the same time.
Huge. Absolutely huge.
The exploding heads are not the result of long-range artillery fire. Leftards are simply freaking out.
They would probably say it is either collusion or reaping the benefits of the Obama policies.
you mean more than usual, right? LOL
