North Korea proposes to hold family reunions on the occasion of the Lunar New Year
 

January 24, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

l      North Korea’s Red Cross proposed to hold family reunions upon the Lunar New Year via the inter-Korean communications channel at Panmunjeom this evening.

 

 

 

 

l      In the message, the North said “the family reunions will be held at Mt. Geumgang as it had been agreed upon at the Red Cross working-level meeting and the South can choose a date for the event at its convenience after the Lunar New Year when the weather thaws, considering the preparation period for the event.”

 

 

 

 

-          Also, the North notified that further issues can be negotiated through the Panmunjeom channel.

 

 

 

 

l      The R.O.K. government welcomes that North Korea accepted our proposal to hold the family reunions though belatedly. Specific issues such as the date of the family reunions, consultation methods will be notified afterwards.
