SEOUL (AFP) - Russia will release a new high-school history textbook next year saying that the Soviet Union and North Korea planned and launched the Korean War in 1950, a Moscow University professor was quoted as saying yesterday. Seoul's Dong-A Daily quoted OS Soroko as telling a seminar on education that the old Moscow line that the Korean War was provoked by South Korea and the United States would be dropped from the book.
