Two Koreas agree to hold families' reunion as planned

North and South Korea agreed on Friday to hold a reunion for families divided by the Korean War as planned, Seoul said, despite North Korean concerns over overlapping South Korea-US military drills.


"South and North Korea agreed to hold the reunion of separated families as scheduled" South Korea's chief delegate to high-level talks with the North, Kim Kyou-Hyun, told reporters.

The families reunion has been scheduled for February 20-25 at the North's Mount Kumgang resort.
