Two Koreas agree on dates for family reunions

Two Koreas agree on dates for family reunions
Officials from North and South Korea have agreed to arrange reunions for families separated by the Korean War from August 20 to August 26, South Korea's Ministry of Unification has said.

The agreement was announced in a joint statement on Friday after delegations from the two Koreas held talks as part of the agreement reached at April's Inter-Korean summit when North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to resume family reunions.

South Korean news agency Yonhap reported the reunions would take place at Mount Kumgang in North Korea and that 100 families from both sides would be allowed to participate in the event.

The last reunions were held in October 2015.
