N. and S. Korea Agree to Rare Talk

Don’t start thanking Dennis Rodman any time soon, but it looks like the relationship between North and South Korea may be improving. Kim Eui-do of South Korea’s Unification Ministry announced Tuesday that the two countries will be meeting in the highest level contact since 2007. Despite the nations' hostile relationship, diplomats have agreed to talks that will probably focus on the reunion of separated families, as well as South Korea’s military drills with the U.S. The two are already planning to hold reunions this month for families separated during the Korea War, but North Korea has threatened to cancel. The two countries have remained technically at war since 1950 because they never signed a peace treaty.
