North Korea says it may back out of the family reunions it agreed to hold with South Korea if the latter continues with the annual drills it holds with the United States. Annual military exercises in the region by South Korean and U.S. forces are scheduled for the end of this month. The drills, the South Korean defense ministry said Thursday, will go on.
