Seoul, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) -- The Guinness World Records has certified South Korea's Saemangeum dike as the longest man-made sea barrier in the world, the government said Monday.

The Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries said Guinness, the world's leading authority on record-breaking achievements, officially confirmed that the 33.9-kilometer-long seawall is 1.4 km longer than the dike at the Zuiderzee Works in the Netherlands.
