Two Koreas to hold first family reunion talks in 2 yrs

SEOUL, Aug. 26 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean delegation was to head to North Korea Wednesday for talks to arrange a new round of reunions of separated families after a nearly two-year hiatus, a sign of thawing cross-border relations.

The reunion talks, channeled by Red Cross offices on both sides, had been stopped as Pyongyang rejected inter-Korean dialogue. The North's agreement to the three-day talks was the latest in its series of recent conciliatory gestures toward the South.
