DPRK rejects S.Korea's offer for talks on regular family reunion

SEOUL, March 6 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Thursday rejected South Korea's offer to hold talks between Red Cross officials to discuss the topic on regularly holding family reunion, Seoul's Unification Ministry said in a statement.

The rejection came a day after South Korea proposed to hold working-level contacts between Red Cross officials on March 12 at the Peace House, an administrative building in the South Korean side of the border village of Panmunjeom.

Seoul's proposal came as a follow-up to President Park Geun-hye 's recent calls for such discussion. Park proposed last Saturday to the DPRK regularizing the face-to-face reunion at a ceremony marking the 1919 nationwide uprising against the 1910-45 Japanese colonial rule.
