Families split by the war and division of North and South Korea will reunite in a brief series of meetings next month, South Korea’s Unification Ministry said in a statement.

The Koreas have agreed to allow the reunion of 100 people from each country for six days from October 20 to 26. This will be the first meetings between divided families since February 2014.

The agreement was the result of talks between the embittered neighbors who only last month were involved in an exchange of fire across the border.

Last February, 200 North and South Koreans met over six days, though freedom was limited by North Korean workers who stood at tables, listening in to conversations.
