South Korea’s defense ministry said Sunday it had detected “unusual” North Korean submarine activity, telling NBC News the submarine movement was a sign that North Korea was using a “dual tactic” of “war and peace strategies” as envoys met in the Panmunjom truce village inside the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the border.
The nations entered a second day of talks on Sunday after the North entered a “quasi state of war” over South Korean propaganda being blasted across the border via loudspeaker.
A South Korean defense official said about 70 percent of the North’s submarines were not in their usual positions. However, it was not clear how many submarines that represented.
“We are detecting unusual movement from North Korean submarines, in that they have left their bases and also North Korea has doubled artillery power along the border,” said an official from Seoul’s Defense Ministry.
