The article offers a factsheet about the West Sea Crisis in Korea. It began with the war-simulation exercises held by military troops from the Republic of Korea and the U.S. The South Korean Ministry of National Defense reported that the units on the West Sea Islands fired into contested waters claimed by both Pyongyang and Seoul near the Northern Limit Line. The two Korean countries do not have a mutual recognition of maritime borders and lack formal diplomatic channels that can ease tensions in the contested waters off Korea's west coast. It is believed that South Korea and North Korea must set a peace process and begin their direct negotiations.
