Amid the peace talks between US president Trump and north Korean leader Kim Un Jong, South Korea says it has begun a survey of families separated by the Korean War to prepare for reunions scheduled for August.

Unification Ministry Deputy Spokesperson Lee Eugene told reporters on Monday that the ministry will survey about 57,000 registered members of separated families to find out if they want to see their loved ones in North Korea.

At their summit in April, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un agreed to hold reunions of the families on August 15th.

Lee said ministry officials will prepare for the event and continue their efforts to fundamentally resolve the issue.

Lee also referred to Tuesday’s US-North Korea summit. She expressed hope that the historic meeting will be a success.

She also said South Korea’s government will work closely with the international community to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and achieve permanent peace.
