The Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Tuesday kicked off a senior-level, inter-governmental dialogue in the truce village of Panmunjom, Seoul's Unification Ministry said.

Seoul's Unification Ministry spokesman Baek Tae-hyun told a news conference that the dialogue will first focus on the DPRK's participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games on Monday.

The 2018 Winter Olympics was scheduled for Feb 9-25 in Pyeongchang in the eastern Gangwon province of the ROK. The Winter Paralympic Games will run on March 9-18 at the same venue.

Issues of mutual concern to improve inter-Korean relations are on the dialogue agenda, such as urgent issues which the ROK proposed in July, the spokesman said.

China welcomed such a move to improve ties, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Monday.

"We hope the international community can support Pyongyang and Seoul's efforts to find a way to reduce tensions and restore talks," he said.
