North Korea to Send Head of Parliament to South Korea for Winter Olympics

SEOUL – North Korea will send the head of its parliament to South Korea for the start of the Winter Olympics, Seoul’s ministry of unification said on Sunday.

Kim Yong-nam, the president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of North Korea, would lead a group of government representatives traveling to the South between Feb. 9-11, the ministry’s statement said.

The purpose of the visit would be assist with the Winter Games, the statement added, and in addition to Kim, three North Korean governmental delegates and 18 other officials are to help with the PyeongChang games.

The trip is set to coincide with a visit by United States Vice President Mike Pence, scheduled to touch down in South Korea on Feb. 8.

In January, the two Koreas – which have technically been at war for 65 years – signed a historic agreement paving the way for athletes from the North to be able to compete in the games.

Besides athletes, North Korea has also agreed to send hundreds of musicians and entertainers to the games, which end Feb. 25.
