South Korea says Kim Jong Un’s sister will attend Games – as delegation arrives from North
SOUTH Korea confirmed Kim Jong Un’s younger sister will attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics – as a group of 280 North Koreans arrived in the South ahead of the Games. The party – one of the largest peace-time crossings of the inter-Korean border – included a 229-strong cheer squad, a Taekwondo performance team, journalists and officials. It is unclear when Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, will arrive in the South – but Seoul’s Unification Ministry said she will be accompanying Kim Yong Nam, North Korea’s nominal head of state, along with two other senior officials. Among those will be Choe Hwi, chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, whose inclusion in the party has sparked concerns North Korea will use the Winter Olympics for propaganda rather than as a route to further positive talks with the South.
