Officials from both sides met at the North's scenic Mount Kumgang resort on Friday and set a date for late August.
(SEOUL, South Korea) -c North and South Korea have agreed to hold temporary reunions of families divided by the 1950-53 Korean War in August as they boost reconciliation efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis.
The Trump administration has identified the missile test engine site that it says North Korea has pledged to destroy, but the president's latest comments about resolving the nuclear standoff have raised new questions about what concessions Pyongyang has made.
China is apparently moving to ease sanctions on North Korea and strengthen bilateral economic cooperation, following the North's leader Kim Jong-un's most recent visit to Beijing.
The summit pledge was followed by the U.S. military's postponement of major joint exercises with its ally South Korea following a pledge by Trump to halt the drills which have aroused repeated anger in the North.
Pompeo said US allies and North Korea's neighbour and ally China were supportive of the USA policy of maintaining sanctions on Pyongyang until its denuclearisation was complete. It has not been confirmed whether the North Korean leader was on board.

But during the 35th minute of the game, a attractive goal from Mexico's Hirving Lozano put the score at 1-0, Mexico. Try as they might, the rest of the game Germany was unable to score.
"It appears that Kim intends to express his gratitude to China for providing support during his summit with Trump, such as offering a plane, while explaining the major agenda items discussed during the summit and pushing to take the initiative through consultation for the future situation", Shin Beom-chul, a senior fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, said. "They're blowing it up", he said.
The declaration continues a state of emergency with regard to North Korea that was declared by the last two presidents.
'They've already blown up one of their big test sites. "In fact, it was actually four of their big test sites", he said.
Trump said at a Cabinet meeting in the White House that "They've stopped the sending of missiles, including ballistic missiles".
"The big thing is, it will be a total denuclearization, which has already started taking place." - remarks Thursday at Cabinet meeting.
North Korea has indicated that it wants a phased approach in dismantling its nuclear weapons program.
Mattis said he was unaware of any steps by North Korea toward denuclearization, and he "wouldn't expect that at this point". Obviously, we're at the very front end of the process. "Detailed negotiations have not begun".
