A South Korean official on Tuesday said North Korea has agreed to hold talks on further family reunions and flood control. Unification Ministry spokeswoman Lee Jong-joo said Tuesday that the working-level officials of the two sides plan to meet Wednesday at a North Korean border city to discuss how to prevent floods in the Imjin River running through their heavily armed border. She said Red Cross societies of the two sides plan to hold working-level talks Friday to discuss reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. The North's agreement came a day after South Korea proposed the talks with North Korea, and also a day after North Korea reportedly fired five missiles off its east coast.
