Korea National Red Cross (KNRC) officials will meet with their North Korean counterparts at Panmunjum Tuesday to exchange the lists of 100 people selected to meet their separated family members on the 15th and their entourage. The government and the KNRC plan to immediately publicize the names on the list through the media upon receiving it from North Korea.

A KNRC official said that North and South Korea agreed to discuss the itinerary of the reunion participants after exchanging the lists. Both sides will sign an agreement guaranteeing the personal safety of visitors selected for reunions.

The government also announced that the visitors to Pyongyang will take part in a workshop August 14 at the Walker Hill Hotel to prepare for their visit. Visitors are restricted from carrying poisonous

chemicals, plants, animals and soil into North Korea. The government also noted that South Korean visitors should not bring excessively expensive gifts to the North.
