SEOUL, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Two-hundred North and South Koreans, separated by war for six decades, are set to be reunited beginning Oct. 30, South Korea said Wednesday.
Spokeswoman Lee Jong-joo of the Unification Ministry said the two sides exchanged lists of families eligible for reunions at a checkpoint in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, Yonhap news agency reported.
Each side gave Red Cross officials the names of 100 people who will take part in the reunions.
Lee told a news briefing the reunions will be held in the North at the Mount Kumgang resort.
She said a 97-year-old woman who will meet with her daughter is the oldest participant from South Korea.
None of the participants is less than 70 years of age, Lee added.
More than 80,000 South Koreans are waiting for a chance to be reunited with relatives left in the North after the Korean War ended in 1953.
