Seoul allows N. Korean bottled water to be brought in for first time in 7 years

South Korea has permitted the shipment of bottled water produced in North Korea to the South, officials said Wednesday, the first such move since Seoul's 2010 imposition of sanctions on Pyongyang aimed at banning inter-Korean exchanges. Seoul's unification ministry said that it has approved a local civic group's request to bring in 46,000 bottles of mineral water produced in North Korea, as they will be used for religious events, not for sale. "The government gave the greenlight to the shipment because Seoul seeks to spur inter-Korean civilian exchanges within the boundaries of international sanctions," a ministry official said.

Moon says 'all' will be possible following nuclear freeze of N. Korea

South Korea and the international community may begin discussions on possible rewards for North Korea if the reclusive state decides to at least freeze its nuclear program and come to the denuclearization dialogue, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday."I believe it will not be easy realistically to move on to complete dismantlement of North Korean nukes in the near future, considering recent advances in North Korea's nuclear and missile programs," the president said at a press conference.

For real holograms like those we can see imagined in science-fiction movies, we still have a long way to go, according to experts.
