South Korea to end anticommunist ban

South Korea is to abolish its anticommunist law banning all acts favoring communism, the Council for National Security said. The abolition is aimed at expanding South Korea's economic and other ties with "nonhostile" communist nations and helping reunification of the two Koreas. But some clauses of the law, including a ban on activities supporting communist North Korea, will be incorporated into the existing National Security Law, prohibiting rebellion and other acts endangering the state.
