North Korea and South Korea Agree to Talks on Family Reunions

Last official meeting between families separated by the Korean war was in 2010


North and South Korea have finalized an agreement to hold talks Friday on reuniting families separated by the Korean War.

Seoul said Thursday Pyongyang agreed to its offer to hold the talks on the South Korean side of the border village of Panmunjom. It has been three years since the last official meeting between Korean families that were driven apart by the 1950s conflict.
