Seoul readying for N. Korean delegates' visit to S. Korea

북한 대표단 지원 위해 정부 합동지원단 구성... 육로로 넘어올지도 '관심'
Preparing to host North Korea,... South Korea has launched a special task force to assist North Korean delegates here for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
With the delegates due to cross the land border,... the South Korean government will also coordinate closely with the UN Command.
Oh Jung-hee reports.
South Korea launched a support team on Tuesday to help the North Korean delegates who'll be visiting South Korea for the Olympics.
It consists of some 20 officials from the unification and culture ministries, and the PyeongChang Olympics Organizing Committee,... who will work together at the Office of Inter-Korean Dialogue... to promote and support the activities of the North Korean delegates.

(Korean)
"We will make sure related ministries cooperate closely on practical matters... so that the PyeongChang Olympics become the Olympics of Peace."

(Stand-up)
"The government says... the team's support for the North Korean delegation will be in accordance with international regulations... and the agreement reached by the two Koreas at recent meetings. And most importantly, the forms of support won't violate any international sanctions against Pyongyang."

Seoul is also expected to work with United Nations Command to enable North Korean delegates make their trip to the South through the land border.
The North's delegation had said on Monday... that the 140 members of its Samjiyon Orchestra who'll be performing in the South... will cross through the truce village of Panmunjom,... over which the UNC has jurisdiction.

(Korean)
"For such a large number of people, walking through the land border is much less uncomfortable than going by sea or air. And, it would promote inter-Korean cooperation on the military level, too. Performing artists coming through the land border may prompt other delegates to take the same route, but I think they'll actually come at different times... since the purpose of their visit is different."
