South Korea is moving ahead with preparations for reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War despite rival North Korea talking about new rocket launches and nuclear tests.South Korean officials have hinted they will try to proceed with planned Oct. 20-26 reunions at North Korea's Diamond Mountain resort even if the North launches a satellite before then.North Korea's government-run Minju Joson newspaper said Saturday that the U.S. and South Korea were making "frantic efforts" to stop the North from conducting a satellite launch and a nuclear test, and said such reactions were an "unforgivable" provocation against the country's sovereignty.A nuclear test or a satellite launch would violate U.N. resolutions, the latter because the rocket technology needed can also be used to develop long-range missiles.South Korean officials have said they have not yet detected any signs indicating preparations for a satellite launch.
