North Korea and South Korea on 7 September 2015 agreed to resume family reunions that were halted since February 2014.

The resumed reunions will take place between 20 October and 26 October 2015 in North Korea's Mount Kumgang resort.

A decision in this regard was taken at the working-level Red Cross meeting of both the countries at the border village of Panmunjom in North Korea.

The meetings were an outcome of the bilateral agreement reached on 25 August 2015 that aimed at defusing tensions along the border.

The decision to resume reunions will benefit thousands of Koreans who were separated due to the division of the Korean peninsula in to two separate countries in the aftermath of the 1953 war.
