Two Koreas exchange information on state of separated family members
South and North Korea have exchanged lists confirming whether each side's candidates for reunions of families separated during wartime are still alive.
Late last month, the South Korean Red Cross passed on a list containing information about the North Korean family members of 2-hundred-50 registered South Koreans, while receiving a similar list of 2-hundred registered North Koreans from its northern counterpart.
After today's exchange, the two sides plan to return with their final lists of 1-hundred each on Monday, with the priority placed on age and direct family membership.
This is the first time in nearly three years the two Koreas will hold family reunions of those separated since the Korean War.
The event is slated to take place at the North's Mount Geumgang resort starting September 25th.
