North and South Korea officials meet to discuss diplomatic ties

Officials from North and South Korea have met in the North’s Mount Kumgang to discuss reunions for families separated by the 1950-1953 Korean War as diplomatic ties between the rivals continued to warm.

The talks, held on the North’s scenic east coast, were part of the agreement reached at April’s Inter-Korean summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

The two leaders agreed to hold family reunions on August 15, which is marked as National Liberation Day in both countries. The last time reunions were held was in October 2015.
