SEOUL » South Korea says it and North Korea have agreed to hold the first reunions of war-divided families in more than three years later this month.

The planned Feb. 20-25 reunions coincide with the expected start of South Korea-U.S. annual springtime military drills that North Korea calls a rehearsal for a northward invasion. The allies call the training defensive.

North Korea scrapped previously scheduled reunions at the last minute in September after accusing South Korea of preparing war drills and other hostile acts.

Seoul's Unification Ministry says the latest agreement was reached during a border meeting between Red Cross delegates from the Koreas on Wednesday. It gave no further details.
