North Korea notifies to send high-level delegation to the closing ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics

February 22, 2018

□ North Korea notified that it will send a high-level delegation with Kim Yong Chol, vice-chairman of the Party Central Committee, as the chief delegate on a three day itinerary starting Feb. 25 through a document under the name of North Korea’s chief delegate of the inter-Korean high-level talks today(2.22).

  o North Korea’s high-level delegation will be composed of chief delegate Kim, delegate Ri Son Gwon(chairman of the 'Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the country') and six support staff. They will be visiting the South through the land route of the Gyeongui Line.

□ We expect the high-level delegation’s participation in the closing ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics to help advance the process of settling peace on the Korean Peninsula including the improvement of inter-Korean relations and denuclearization. Against this backdrop, we will accept the visit of North Korea's high-level delegation to the South.

□ Further practical matters, including the high-level delegation’s itinerary, will be discussed in the form of document exchange through the Panmunjeom communications channel.
