Separated Korean Families to Meet in Mt. Geumgang

A group of 97 South Koreans will meet their North Korean relatives in a scenic mountain resort in the North Wednesday (Oct. 17) for the first time in over half a century since they were separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

The face-to-face reunions, the 16th of such sessions, are taking place amid warming inter-Korean relations following the second summit by the leaders of the two Koreas in six decades. The first inter-Korean summit in 2000 resulted in the reunions of separated families.
