South Korea has repeated its call to North Korea. to accept its proposal for Red Cross talks on resuming reunions for families separated by the Korean War.
Seoul's unification ministry said Friday it sent a message to Pyongyang saying that humanitarian issues, such as family reunions, have always been dealt with by the Red Cross.
It noted the North had agreed at their previous meeting to hold further rounds of Red Cross talks to discuss such issues.
Pyongyang rejected the offer for talks on Wednesday,,,, saying the proper atmosphere has not been created.
Seoul says the issue of family reunions should not be linked to political or military tensions.
