Reconciliation?

Koreans Agree to Revive Family Reunion Program

The end of an era? North Korea and South Korea agreed on Friday to revive a family-reunion program after a three-year hiatus. The program allows family members separated by one of the world's most infamous borders to meet for the first time since the Korean War over 60 years ago. The first round of reunions will be held for five days in late September at North Korea's Diamond Mountain Resort. About 100 people will participate. Another round is expected in November, and October is reserved for online reunions, during which 40 families will meet their cross-border relatives via video conference.
