on 6 December according to the department of Correctional Services File photo of Oscar Pistorius in court AP "Oscar Pistorius sustained a bruise following an alleged incident with another inmate over

conviction to murder Seoul: Among a row of sky-blue huts straddling the border between North and South Korea soldiers from both sides face off against each other on the world’s last Cold War frontier Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone where officials from North and South Korea met Tuesday is a traditional point of contact on the border but also a physical representation of the 1950-53 Korean War’s enduring effects Millions of Koreans died in the conflict with the armistice signed at Panmunjom leaving the peninsula divided and the two Koreas technically still at war in the absence of a formal peace treaty Despite its name the DMZ separating the two Koreas is one of the world’s most heavily fortified frontiers brimming with minefields and watchtowers Panmunjom is the only place in the DMZ where the two sides come face to face with the border marked only by a low concrete divider The head of North Korean delegation Ri Son Gwon for the meeting with South Korea at the Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone on Tuesday AP It has witnessed a number of dramatic incidents Most recently a North Korean soldier dashed across the border in an extremely rare and dramatic defection in November when his comrades fired at least 40 rounds in an effort to kill him There have been previous defections at Panmunjom most notably in 1984 when a Russian student from Moscow sprinted across the border and triggered a 30-minute gun battle that left four people dead— although he was unhurt Another gun battle was recorded in 1967 when a senior journalist from the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency defected while covering military talks And there were fears of a full-scale conflict in 1976 after a group of North Korean troops axed to death two American soldiers who were trimming a nearby tree Direct line US presidents visiting South Korea have often gone to DMZ as a symbolic demonstration of Washington’s commitment to defend Seoul But bad weather forced Donald Trump to call off a surprise trip there in November— after his office earlier labelled such visits a "cliche" North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un made a rare trip to Panmunjom in 2012 with state media carrying pictures of him looking across the border at the South through a pair of binoculars amid heightened tensions Over the years the site has turned into a major attraction for visiting foreigners Tourists to the southern side are given ample warning against actions that could antagonise the North Korean soldiers before they cautiously begin capturing snapshots of the division "It’s very upsetting that a country is so divided" said Julia Ahn a 24-year-old student from New York on a trip to Panmunjom "It’s good information but very hard to swallow" Tuesday’s discussions the first between the Koreas in more than two years were being held at the Peace House on the southern side of the neutral area— the North also has a talks venue on its side Tongilgak North and South are so deeply divided that there are no direct telephone communications between them for ordinary citizens — but both buildings are connected to Seoul and Pyongyang so the discussions can be closely monitored by officials in the two capitals MANILA (Reuters) – China’s agreement to begin talks with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on the fine print of a code of conduct framework for the disputed South China Sea will help to stabilise the region Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Chinese Premier Li Keqiang attends the 20th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Plus Three (APT) Commemorative Summit on the sideline of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Manila on November 14 2017 REUTERS/Noel Celis/Pool“China’s greatest hope is for peace and stability in the South China Sea” Li told ASEAN leaders in Manila The Chinese and Southeast Asian foreign ministers in August adopted a negotiating framework for a code of conduct in the South China Sea a move they hailed as progress but seen by critics as a tactic to buy China time to consolidate its maritime power While the South China Sea was not as dominant an issue at this summit at a time of relative calm there was an underlying acknowledgement amongst ASEAN members that the risk of a miscalculation in the disputed waterway could flare up at anytime Li addressing ASEAN leaders during a summit in the Philippines capital Manila on Monday said there was a consensus on moving forward and to try to peacefully resolve the issue “We hope the talks on the code of conduct will bolster mutual understanding and trust” Li said according to a transcript of his speech released by China’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday He added that he hoped this would be a “stabilizer” for the region while pledging that China would “firmly safeguard” the freedom of navigation and overflight in the strategic waterway where $3 trillion worth of goods passes every year Critics however say the agreement to talk on the details of the code of conduct is only an incremental move with a possible final agreement still years away While Li did not give a timeframe Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte who was chairing the regional summit said China was being pressed to set a specific date and that Beijing responded it would “consider really fast-trackking” the code of conduct “China has graciously agreed to a code of conduct and it binds itself to the agreement” Duterte said The framework seeks to advance a 2002 Declaration of Conduct (DOC) of Parties in the South China Sea which has mostly been ignored by claimant states particularly China which has built seven manmade islands in disputed waters three of which are equipped with runways surface-to-air missiles and radars All parties say the framework is only an outline for how the code will be established but critics say the failure to outline as an initial objective the need to make the code legally binding and enforceable or have a dispute resolution mechanism raises doubts about how effective the pact will be Signing China up to a legally binding and enforceable code for the waterway has long been a goal for claimant members of ASEAN some of which have sparred for years over what they see as China’s disregard for their sovereign rights and its blocking of fishermen and energy exploration efforts Malaysia Taiwan Brunei Vietnam and the Philippines all claim some or all of the South China Sea and its myriad shoals reefs and islands China claims most of the waterway and has been aggressively building and militarizing artificial islands China’s official news agency Xinhua said in a commentary that the pact to hold consultations on the code of conduct was “a new starting point to jointly build a sea of peace stability and prosperity” This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Written by Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: December 26 2013 2:31 am Related News A cashier with a
