Seoul's unification ministry sent a written proposal to Pyongyang earlier this Wednesday morning suggesting the two Koreas hold talks to arrange regular reunions for families separated by the Korean War.
Deputy spokesperson Park Su-jin said the ministry proposed holding a round of working-level Red Cross talks next Wednesday on the South Korean side of Panmunjom , the inter-Korean security zone that is located at the de facto border between the two Koreas.
The move follows President Park Geun-hye's recent call for regular family reunions during a speech at a ceremony commemorating Korea's Independence Movement Day on March first.
The last round of reunions was held two weeks ago, for the first in three years.
