10:22 am
was signed here at the joint security area at panmunjom the two sides agreed then to establish the four kilometer buffer zone between north and south known as the demilitarized zone or d.m.z. it's still heavily guarded on both sides and has been the site of tensions over the years north korean soldiers killed two u.s. army officers in one nine hundred seventy six landmines injured south korean soldiers and twenty fifteen and late last year a north korean defector what's shot by fellow north korean troops as he ran across the border not far from where i'm standing. this year as relations improved between the two koreas this village has once again been used as a venue for high level talks within the d.m.z. the military demarcation line marks the actual border between north and south in this room when i walk over to this side of the table i'm crossing into north korea so it was significant when earlier this year
