2 Koreas Discuss Northern Art Troupe's Visit During Olympics

Sunday, 14 January 2018 08:37 PM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North and South Korea have begun talks about North Korea's plan to send an art troupe during next month's Winter Olympics in the South.

North Korea last week agreed to send an Olympic delegation as part of a rapprochement deal with South Korea following months of tensions over its nuclear program. The North says the delegation would include an art troupe along with officials, athletes, cheerleaders and journalists.

Monday's talks at the border village of Panmunjom will likely focus on the makeup of an art troupe and when and where in South Korea they would perform.

Drawing keen media attention is whether the North would send its famous "Moranbong Band," an all-female ensemble hand-picked by the North's leader Kim Jong Un.
