(02-05 14:17)

Seoul and Pyongyang agreed Wednesday to hold reunion of separated families from February 20 to 25, three days later than agreed before, according to local media reports.
The agreement came after Red Cross officials from both sides held talks at the border village of Panmunjeom to sort out details, including the reunion date and venue. The delegates met at Tongilgak, an administrative building on the North side of the truce village.
On January 24, the two Koreas agreed on the reunion of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War at the North's scenic Mount Kumgang resort. Seoul originally proposed the reunion date from Feb. 17 to 22, but the date was slightly delayed to six days through Feb. 25. --Xinhua
