[The Chosun Ilbo, February 5 2008] Separated Families May Exchange Holiday Video Letters

Twenty separated families from North and South Korea may have a chance to share greetings for the Lunar New Year through video letters.

Seoul's Unification Ministry announced Monday that the two Koreas' Red Cross agencies will meet at the truce village of Panmunjeom Tuesday to ink a deal on allowing video exchanges for divided families who have already reunited in person or through real-time video.

Upon signing the deal 30 families from each side will be selected every quarter to exchange videotapes. Each video-letter should be 20 minutes long and there will be no limit to how many family members can appear on a tape.
