The approach of Christmas is tensions between neighbours North and South Korea. The source of the friction is the proposed erection of two 30-metre-tall Christmas-tree-shaped towers near the of the two Koreas. The South Korean government has to a request from Christian groups to put up the towers within of the North Korean city of Kaesong. The move has provoked reaction from North Korea. Its state-run website has said up the towers would amount to ‘psychological warfare’. South Korea has denied claims. It says the huge steel trees are simply a sign of the of expression and religion people in the South enjoy.

Relations on the Korean Peninsular are low following the sinking of one of South Korea’s warships in March 2010 with the of 46 lives. It is the first time in seven years that the will be visible from the North. The last it happened, Pyongyang accused Seoul of using the trees to try and Christianity to people in atheist North Korea. South Korean religious disagree. Tak Sejin, chairman of the group organising the tree , said: “This is a ceremony for on the Korean peninsula and national unity. It is being held with our desire for among our fellow men and between North and South Korea.” Mr Sejin added: “We are doing this with the expectation that day our people can become one.”
