S. Korea receives DPRK’s list of 5-member delegation for talks
    2018-January-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) yesterday sent the list of its five-member delegation to South Korea through the restored hotline in the truce village of Panmunjom for this week’s high-level inter-Korean talks, Seoul’s unification ministry said.

The DPRK delegation will be led by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland (CPRF), according to South Korea’s unification ministry in charge of inter-Korean affairs.

Four other delegates included CPRF Vice Chairman Jon Jong Su, Vice Minister of Physical Culture and Sports Won Kil U, CPRK Director Hwang Chung-song and Ri Kyong Sik, a member of the National Olympic Committee of the DPRK.

The previous day, South Korea sent the list of its five-member delegation to the DPRK. South Korea’s chief delegate would be Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon.

The four other delegates were Vice Unification Minister Chung Haesung, Second Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Roh Tae-kang, Ahn Moon-hyun, deputy director-general at the Prime Minister’s Office, and Kim Ki-hong, a vice president of games planning at the organizing committee for the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games.

The DPRK accepted South Korea’s dialogue overture Friday, agreeing to hold senior-level, inter-governmental talks Tuesday at Peace House in the South Korean side of Panmunjom that straddles the inter-Korean land border.

The hotline of direct dialogue between the two Koreas was reopened Wednesday for the first time in almost two years.

Signs of a thaw were seen on the Korean Peninsula as top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un said in his New Year’s address that his country was willing to dispatch its delegation to the South Korea-hosted Winter Olympics set to kick off in February.

Trump said Saturday that he is willing to talk with Kim Jong Un, and supports the talks between the two Koreas.

“I always believe in talking,” Trump told reporters at the Camp David resort when asked whether he was willing to engage in phone talks with Kim right now. “Absolutely I would do that. No problem with that at all.”(Xinhua)
