SEOUL, 10 January (BelTA - Yonhap) - North Korea is expected to send a delegation of between 400-500 people to South Korea for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Wednesday.

On Tuesday, South and North Korea agreed, in their first high-level talks since 2015, that the North would send high-ranking officials, athletes, cheering and performing arts squads, taekwondo demonstration teams and journalists, to next month's Winter Games.

"A massive delegation totaling between 400-500 people is expected to come," Lee said during a meeting with companies sponsoring the PyeongChang Olympics, adding that the two Koreas will work out details of the delegation's visit.

Lee Nak-yon said he hopes the PyeongChang Games will help reduce security risks on the Korean Peninsula.
