SEOUL, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - South Korea has officially offered North Korea to hold talks on restarting reunions for families separated by the Korean War of 1950-1953 on August 23.

The South Korean Ministry of Unification sent the offer to North Korea on Friday. “The government of the Republic of Korea hopes that it will be possible to all issues, through these talks and time the reunion of separated families to the national holiday Chusok (September 19),” a ministry official said.

Some 73,000 citizens of South Korea, mostly over the age of 70, are keen to see their relatives living in North Korea, whom they have not seen for more than a century.
