I would like to be a fly on the wall for this meeting.

Journalists from North and South Korea will meet for the first time in 60 years today to discuss ways to promote inter-Korean exchanges and reconciliation, organizers said yesterday.

The two-day meeting, scheduled to start today at Mount Kumgang, a scenic resort on North Korea’s east coast, will bring together 123 from South Korea and 50 from the North, according to a statement from the South Korea-based Journalists Association of Korea.

None of the journalists at the meeting will be from any of South Korea’s major newspapers. They are mostly from left-leaning publications and press-related civic groups.

No doubt there will be a lot of time spent plotting ways to encourage the removal of USFK and suchlike. I wonder how many of the journalists are from the KTU/other unions or Hancheonyeon
