S Korea hopes to reunite with North

Government in Seoul has launched an online programme to promote reunification amid heightened tension.

    More than fifty years after Korea split in two, South Korea wants to reunite with the communist North, despite the peninsula's bitter history.

    The government in Seoul has launched an online programme to promote reunification.

    However, talks over the North's nuclear programme remain stalled and tensions between the two Koreas have rarely been higher.
