The floating of propaganda leaflets to North Korea can probably resume soon now that northerly winds which halted the activity for a month are abating, Grand National Party lawmaker Shin Ji-ho said Sunday.
The wind would have blown the helium balloons that carry the leaflets back to the South, so a plan to send them on the birthday of North Korean heir apparent Kim Jong-un was canceled.
Shin said southwesterly wind is forecast for Wednesday, the birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. Some 100,000 leaflets are ready to be sent, with their front denouncing the hereditary power succession in North Korea and the back contrasting pictures of starving North Koreans and the luxurious life of the Kims.
