SEOUL, February 07, 8:19 /ITAR-TASS/. A group of South Korean specialists has left for the Mount Kumgang resort in North Korea to prepare for the reunions of families separated by the 1950-1953 Korean War due on February 20-25, South Korea’s Unification Ministry said on Friday.
The group includes 66 representatives of the Korean Red Cross and servicemen of Hyundai Asan, an arm of the South Korean conglomerate Hyundai Group and a major investor in North Korea, that built and maintained the resort’s facilities at the Mount Kumgang.
“On Friday morning North Korea agreed to receive specialists who will check the state of facilities, which will host the reunions,” the ministry said in a press release.
On Wednesday, the two Koreas’ delegations agreed to hold the reunions of relatives who had not seen each other for over 50 years.
At the moment, the delegations have already exchanged the lists of participants saying that taking part in the reunions will be 85 South Koreans and 95 North Koreans.
