Koreas agree to hold family reunion as scheduled
South Korea and North Korea agreed Friday to hold the family reunion programme as planned Feb 20-25, said South Korean chief delegate of the inter-Korean high-level talks.
Kim Kyou-hyun, chief of the delegation, told reporters that the two countries would hold the reunion of families, separated by the 1950-53 Korean War, as scheduled, referring to the three-point agreement reached between Seoul and Pyongyang in the second round of high-level talks at the border village of Panmunjom, reported Xinhua.
Delegations from both sides also agreed to stop slandering each other and to enhance mutual understanding and trust, while continuing to consult with each other on mutual interests and making efforts to develop inter-Korean relations.
Kim said that the two countries agreed to hold another high-level dialogue when both sides were comfortable.
