The North confirmed it would attend next month's Olympics in the South at a rare inter-Korean meeting last week, following months of tensions over its nuclear weapons programme.

North Korea confirmed on Tuesday that it will send a delegation of athletes to the Olympics, which take place in Pyeongchang next month, despite the two countries technically still being at war.

South Korea has proposed working-level talks with North Korea on the latter's participation in the Winter Olympics set for February, the South's unification ministry said on Friday.

The ministry said the North wanted to also propose another date for working-level talks about its participation in the winter olympics.

Earlier on Tuesday, Seoul said it was prepared to lift some sanctions temporarily so North Korean officials could visit the South for the Games.
