North Korea has inked a deal with Beijing which allows Chinese fishermen to operate in waters near the inter-Korean border, including some areas south of the Northern Limit Line, the de facto West Sea border between the two Koreas.
A South Korean government source says Pyongyang included South Korea's territorial waters when it sold its fishing rights near the inter-Korean border.
North Korea regularly sells China fishing rights for crab fishing, but this is the first time they've incorporated South Korean waters into a contract.
The source says the South Korean government is asking Beijing to make sure no Chinese fishing boats cross the maritime border.
