South Korea proposes family reunions next month

South Korea on Monday proposed that the rival Koreas restart arranging reunions next month for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

 

North Korea last week agreed to resume the reunions by letting South Korea choose dates for the humanitarian program. The move was the latest in a recent series of conciliatory gestures North Korea has taken in a sharp contrast from last spring when the country raised tension with threats of nuclear wars.(AP)
