N. Korea rejects S. Korea's family reunion proposal
North Korea has rejected South Korea's proposal to resume reunions of families separated by the Korean War. The reunion program remains stalled amid tension between the rival Koreas since it was last held in late 2010. The Koreas had planned to resume the program last September before Pyongyang abruptly scuttled it.


A key dispute is North Korea's push to link the reunion's resumption to the restart of a dormant lucrative joint tourism project in the North. (AP)
