Preparations for the upcoming reunions of families separated by the Korean War are well underway. The two Koreas exchanged lists of candidates who wish to meet their loved ones next month at the Mt. Kumgang resort in the North.
The National Red Cross said Thursday that it sent a list of 250 South Koreans to the North through a communication channel in the truce village of Panmunjom and received a list with 200 names from the communist state in return.
The lists will be used to check the whereabouts of candidates and whittle down to 100 from each side, which will be handed in on Sept. 16 for the event slated for Sept. 25 to 30.
