Pyongyang, North Korea, August 10, 2007—North Korean performers depict a symbolic Korean reunification by forming the shape of the Korean peninsula Monday.

The performance is part of the annual Arirang Grand Mass Games, the largest choreographed gymnastic display in the world with more than 100,000 dancers.

The leaders of North and South Korea announced on August 8 that they will meet in Pyongyang on August 28 to 30, the news agency Reuters reported.

The meeting will be the second time since their countries' division at the end of World War II in 1945. Nuclear disarmament in Pyongyang, North Korea, has eased strained relations between the two countries, whose political ideologies have differed substantially since the Cold War.
