North and South Korea have agreed to arrange the first reunions in three years of some of the families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War .

Both countries leaders along with their delegations met at a hotel on Mount Kumgang , North Korea today.

The leader of the North Korean delegation at the talks said that the whole world is marveling at the amazing developments between the North and South

South Korean officials have often called for the visits to resume as a “humanitarian and human rights issue”, especially since many individuals are now in their 80s and 90s.

The first reunions were held in 1985 and about 20 have been held since then with the last in 2015.
