It's interesting that the Chosun has an article "Gov't Mulls Turning DMZ into Eco-Peace Belt".
The ministry laid out potential plans mainly focused on making the DMZ an eco-peace belt that would include biosphere preservation districts, geoparks and an ecology tour program.
The ministry also plans to turn the 495-km line that runs between Ganghwa in Incheon and Goseong in Gangwon Province into a bicycle path, possibly holding an international mountain biking competition once it is completed.
Areas surrounding the truce village of Panmunjom are to be turned into a symbol of world peace. Efforts to establish a United Nations peace conference center and a UN peace university are currently underway.
I like the bicycle paths and the other plans but hate, HATE the idea of making the DMZ a symbol of peace. That is as wrong as George Bush II's "Mission Accomplished" banner. Make it a peace zone after there is peace, don't distract the people away from the horrors on the other side (this is what my previous post on the subject was about).
