Seoul Proposes Inter-Korean Meeting to Discuss Family Reunion

The South Korean Red Cross has proposed a meeting with its North Korean counterpart on August first to arrange reunions of families separated by the Korean War. 
 
The acting president of the South Korean Red Cross, Kim Sun-hyang, revealed the proposal in a news conference on Monday.
 
Seoul proposed the two Koreas' Red Cross agencies meet at the South's side of the Panmunjeom truce village on August first for the family reunion.
 
The proposal came in the wake of President Moon Jae-in's peace offers during his recent speech in Berlin, Germany. He proposed reunions of families separated by the War on the October fourth Chuseok holiday, often described as Korea's Thanksgiving. 
 
This year's lunar calendar holiday coincides with the anniversary of an inter-Korean statement late former President Roh Moo-hyun and late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il produced in 2007.
