    Reunion of separated families only applies to the Korean peninsula because of its special circumstance as a separated nation.
    Reunion of separated families is an event of reunion of families that were separated by the Korean War. In September 1985, the first Reunion of separated families was held in Seoul and Pyeongyang, where concerts events were simultaneously held. However, after 2010, Reunion of separated families event has seized to exist. After the bombing of Yeonpyeong islands in November 2010, Reunion of separated families never took place.
    Recently, S. Korea suggested holding working-level talks about Reunion of separated families through the Red Cross, but N. Korea refused the offer.
    North Korea stated that Reunion of separated families problem will not be solved unless sanctions on North Korea is removed and the Mt. Geumgang tour resumes. I don't like N. Korea's attitude of using Reunion of separated families for political means, and I pity the families that are unable to reunite.
