(6th LD) Koreas fail to agree on more family reunions, North requests aid

By Kim Hyun and Tony Chang
SEOUL, Oct. 16 (Yonhap) -- The two Koreas on Friday ended their day-long negotiations over further cross-border family reunions and other humanitarian issues without reaching any concrete agreement, with Pyongyang asking for resumption of aid by Seoul, officials said.

In the meeting arranged by Red Cross offices from both sides, South Korea proposed holding new rounds of reunions for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War next month in both Seoul and Pyongyang, and again around February at the North's Mount Kumgang resort.
