NORTH Korea’s proposed entry to South Korea’s Winter Olympics could see Seoul to cave in to Pyongyang with concessions for Kim Jong-un’s warmongering state.
South Korea previously banned several North Korean officials from entering the country in response to Pyongyang's ramped-up missile and nuclear tests, conducted despite international pressure.
However, some South Korean officials have said they see the Olympics as a possible opportunity for easing tensions.
Foreign ministry spokesman Roh Kyu-deok said Seoul would consider whether it needed to take "prior steps" to help the North Koreans visit for the Olympics.
At today’s talks, the first since December 2015, Seoul proposed inter-Korean military discussions to reduce tensions on the Korean peninsula and a reunion of family members in time for February's Lunar New Year holiday.
