Korea, Burma to Stick with Rangoon Bombing Memorial

The foreign ministers of Korea and Burma agreed Thursday to carry on with the construction of a memorial for the victims of the 1983 Rangoon bombing by North Korean agents.

The bombing claimed the lives of 17 South Koreans and wounded 14.

The memorial was originally agreed on Dec. 31 of last year with a memorandum of understanding that set aside a plot in the Aung San National Cemetery to South Korea. But the project was delayed by opposition from some Burmese groups.
