SEOUL, South Korea
South Korea says North Korea has agreed to hold talks to discuss arranging reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.
Seoul's Unification Ministry says North Korea on Monday proposed the talks take place either on Wednesday or Thursday at a border village and let South Korea choose the date.
Pyongyang has recently toned down its typical rhetoric against Seoul and made a series of conciliatory gestures. Last spring, the country dramatically raised tension by issuing threats to launch nuclear wars.
