N. Korea Proposes Working-Level Talks to Discuss Sending Performing Artists

N. Korea Proposes Working-Level Talks to Discuss Sending Performing Artists

The meeting was called following a joint proposal by the North and South Korea on Tuesday, Xinhua news agency reported.

North Korea's International Olympic Committee representative said Saturday there is still work left to be done for the country's participation in next month's Winter Olympic Games in South Korea. The North has yet to respond to that offer as well.

At that meeting they agreed to hold military talks and send a North Korean delegation of officials, athletes, cheerleaders, journalists and others to the Olympics.

The North also said it will later propose dates for working-level talks on the North's participation in the PyeongChang Olympics, the ministry said.

It would not be the first time the two Koreas have fielded joint teams.

He added that an all-Korea ice hockey team should not force any South Korean players to lose their place in the existing squad to accommodate their North Korean teammates.

The South has also offered to combine with the North for the opening and closing ceremonies, with the two countries marching together under a unified flag.

Vice President Mike Pence and Karen Pence will lead the US delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Jarrod Agen, Pence's deputy chief of staff, said Pence would travel to the Olympics "to reinforce the strong USA presence on the Korean Peninsula and send a clear message of American resolve to the North Korean regime".

The figure skating pair Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik were the only North Korean athletes to qualify but missed the deadline to register for their event.
