The South Korean president Park Geun-hye proposed on Thursday that the two Koreas hold a reunion next month for families still separated 60 years after the Korean War.
"Around this Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day - celebrated on the 18-20th of September)," Park said. "I ask North Korea to open its heart to allow a reunion of separated families."
Family reunions were one of the major inter-Korean cooperation projects that occurred during a detente between a landmark summit of the two Koreas' leaders in 2000 and the return of tensions in 2010. About 22,000 Koreans were able to meet with loved ones in that time.
Park made her proposal on the day that two Koreas mark 1945 independence from Japanese colonisation. A proposal made in July to discuss resuming the reunions fizzled.
The proposal came a day after the rivals moved toward reopening a jointly run factory park closed since April.
Reacting to the latest round of talks between the two states, Park said she hoped to change the mistakes of the past and build closer ties.
In a speech televised nationwide, she said the agreement to reopen the jointly run Kaesong factory park would start a new inter-Korean relationship that is marked by co-existence.
"I hope to remedy inappropriate practices of the South and North Korean relationship, and to begin a new win-win relationship between North and South Korea," Park said.
The negotiators agreed both countries would actively make efforts to resume Kaesong operations, though it was not conclusive and no timetable was
The industrial complex in North Korea's third-largest city, Kaesong, had been the last symbol of cooperation from the 2000-2010 detente until Pyongyang halted operations during a torrent of threats earlier this year that included vows of nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul.
Park also asked North Korea to jointly build a peace park in the demilitarised zone in the border.
The 1950-1953 war ended with a truce and no peace treaty was signed.
She also commented on the strained relationship between South Korea and Japan caused by the visit of senior Japanese politicians to the Yakasuni shrine to the war dead in Tokyo on Thursday morning, the 68th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War Two.
"I expect the Japanese government to take sincere measures to cure people who are still living with the pain and sorrow that stemmed from the past history."
The shrine has been a major obstacle in Japan's attempts to mend ties with countries it occupied during the war, especially China and South Korea, who say it pays tribute to war criminals.
Though Japan has issued several apologies for its wartime actions, the anniversary evokes bitter memories across Asia.
