Number of reunited family members divided by the Korean War 2002-2019

No one from families separated during the Korean War in 1950-1953 were reunited in 2019. Due to the ongoing war between North Korea and South Korea, which was only suspended with an armistice and not a true peace treaty, it is impossible for family members to simply meet each other. Past reunions were organized at the government level.

Supplementary notes

Since the Korean War ended in 1953, many families have been divided into North and South Korea. After the North-South Korea Summit in 2000, the governments have arranged 20 times of reunions for the divided families until December 2015. Due to the tensions on the Korean peninsula, there has been no arrangement in 2019.
