  • Description

    Representatives of the North and South Korean Red Cross met in Pyongyang on Tuesday (24 Oct) for their third round of talks on how to reunite divided families on both sides of the 38th parallel.

    The meeting marked the start of substantive discussions on the issue.

    However, a surprise call by the North Korean for an end to what they called the anti-Communist policy in the South, appeared to pose a new problem. The Chief North Korean delegate, Kim Tae-hui, argued that so long as the South continued its anti-Communist policy, divided families would be reluctant to report to authorities.

    The leader of the South Korean delegation, Lee Bum-suk, appealed in his speech for both sides to refrain from what he called 'jumpy logic" which might adversely affect the atmosphere of the talks. The two sides held a further meeting in the afternoon but failed to narrow the differences in their basic positions.

    They will meet again in Seoul next month.
