North and South Korea reached an agreement Friday on reunions for families separated for decades by the Korean War, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.
Reunions will be held from September 26 to October 1.
The agreement comes after three days of talks between the two sides in North Korea.
Rapprochement talks between the two sides have hit a wall since conservative South Korean President Lee Myung-bak took office in early 2008 with a tougher stance toward the North than his liberal predecessor, Roh Moo-Hyun.
The two Koreas have remained in conflict since the conclusion of the Korean War in 1953, which ended in a truce, but no formal peace treaty was ever signed.
Last week, both sides had the first high-level, cross-border contact in nearly two years.
