Two Koreas exchange lists of candidates for family reunions
Preparations for the upcoming reunions of families separated since the Korean War are well underway.
The two Koreas exchanged lists of candidates who wish to meet with their family members next month at the Mount Geumgang resort in the North.
The Korean Red Cross in Seoul says it sent a list of 2-hundred-50 South Koreans to the North through a channel at the truce village of Panmunjeom on Thursday and received a list with 2-hundred names from its northern counterpart.
The lists will be used to check on the availability of the families and the two sides will exchange on September 16th a final list of 1-hundred people from each side to take part in the event slated from September 25th to the 30th.
