Hopes for talks grow with North Korea's ceremonial leader to visit South Korea for Olympics


North Korea’s ceremonial leader will make an unprecedented visit to South Korea this week, officials said on Monday, as hopes grew for high-level inter-Korean talks during the Winter Olympics that begin in four days, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

North Korea’s official KCNA news agency confirmed on Monday that Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly, would attend the Olympics’ opening ceremony on Friday in South Korea’s alpine resort town of Pyeongchang.

 

Seoul’s Unification Ministry said Kim would lead a 22-strong delegation that was expected to arrive in South Korea on Friday for a three-day trip.

 

Kim’s visit comes as Seoul pins its hopes on high-level talks during the Feb. 9-25 Games between not only the two Koreas but also the North and the United States.
