The DPRK will send a 140-piece orchestra to the Winter Olympics, which will be held in South Korea's Pyeongchang from February 9 to 25. This is reported by Yonhap News Agency.


According to the agency, North Korean musicians will give concerts in Seoul and in the city of Gangneung, where part of the Olympic events will take place. An agreement was reached that the orchestra would cross the border with the Republic of Korea on foot.

The Republic of Korea and the DPRK began negotiations on January 15 regarding the visit of North Korean artists to the 2018 Olympics. The dialogue is taking place on the North Korean side at the Phanmunjom border checkpoint.

At the beginning of the year, there has been a thaw in relations between the North and the South. For the first time in two years, they held ministerial-level talks at the Phanmunjom border crossing. Based on their results, the parties decided that the DPRK would send a delegation to the Olympics in Pyeongchang, including representatives of the authorities.
