NKorea mulls family reunions for Korean-Americans

By Associated Press

POSTED:



SEOUL, South Korea >> North Korea says it is considering allowing Korean-Americans to be reunited with their separated families in the North.

A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday that the United States recently proposed discussing the issue through Red Cross and other channels.

The unidentified spokesman said such an exchange would help boost confidence between the countries and help resolve other problems in the future.

He did not elaborate. But a senior North Korean diplomat recently met with U.S. officials in New York to talk about ways to restart long-stalled nuclear disarmament talks.

Millions of Koreans were separated during the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.
