North-South Red Cross Working Contact Made
Panmunjom, February 5 (KCNA) -- North-south Red Cross working contact was made at the Thongil House in the north's portion of Panmunjom Wednesday for the reunion of separated families and their relatives.

At the contact both sides discussed the issues arising in successfully ensuring the reunion of separated families and their relatives before adopting an agreement.

According to it, the north and the south decided to hold the reunion at Mt. Kumgang resort from Feb. 20 to 25, 2014 and agreed to fix the number of the persons involved in the event according to the final lists exchanged last year and follow practice as regards the way and method of arranging the reunion.

Both sides decided to arrange indoor reunion instead of outdoor reunion, taking weather conditions into consideration, and hold group reunion at the Mt. Kumgang Reunion Centre and Kumgangsan Hotel.

It was also decided to open the north-south Red Cross working contact after the event to further the discussion on settling humanitarian issues.
