The top legislator of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will lead its high-ranking delegation to South Korea to attend the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Seoul's unification ministry said Sunday.

The DPRK sent a notice through the restored hotline of direct dialogue in the truce village of Panmunjom Sunday night, saying the DPRK's high-ranking delegation, led by Kim Yong-nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, will visit South Korea from Feb. 9-11.

The DPRK delegation will include three delegates and 18 supporting officials. Who will be the three delegates was not yet known.

During the inter-Korean talks in January, the DPRK agreed to send its athletes and cheerleaders as well as a ranking delegation to the 23rd Winter Olympics scheduled to kick off on Feb. 9 at South Korea's east county of PyeongChang.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will lead a U.S. delegation to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics to attend the opening ceremony of the South Korea-hosted winter sports event.

During the telephone talks in January, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump saw a possibility for the inter-Korean dialogue naturally leading to a dialogue between the DPRK and theUnited Statesfor the denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

The possibility cannot be ruled out for Pence to meet with the DPRK's top legislator during the Winter Olympics.
