South Korea seeks to put family reunions on Talks Agenda with North Korea

South Korea will seek discussions on resuming the reunion of separated families, at this week's Inter-Korean Talks. The talks will largely focus on the North's participation in next month's Winter Olympics. However, the two sides are also expected to bring up their own issues of interest. Their tentative rapprochement comes after North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un said that his country could send a team to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. South Korea responded with an offer for talks. The offer resulted in the hotline between the two Koreas being restored after being suspended for almost two years.
