Two Koreas demolish DMZ guard posts

South Korea's military on Monday confirmed the demolition and disablement of some North Korean border guard posts through its onsite verification last week.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff announced the results of its December 12 work to verify the demolition of 10 North Korean guard posts in the Demilitarized Zone and the disarmament of another post.

As part of a boarder accord to reduce military tensions and build trust, Seoul and Pyongyang initially agreed to demolish 11 guard posts each. But they decided later to keep one of them in light of their historical value.
