12 South Korean officials arrived in North Korea on Tuesday to inspect venues in which inter-Korean cultural and sports events are set to be held to celebrate the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

Officials crossed over the border to North Korea using the East Sea Line, making it the first time the border crossing had been used since October 2015.

Director-general for the Unification Ministry's inter-Korean exchange and cooperation department Lee Joo-tae was among those inspecting the venues. "We are going to closely check the Mount Kumgang resort and Masikryong sky resort with deliberation. Thank you," he commented.

Los miembros de la delegación cruzaron la frontera con Corea del Norte utilizando la Línea del mar del Este, por lo que es la primera vez que se usa este paso fronterizo desde octubre de 2015.

Lee Joo-tae, director general del Departamento Intercoreano de Intercambio y Cooperación del Ministerio de Unificación, fue uno de los que revisó las instalaciones. "Vamos a revisar de cerca el complejo del monte Kumgang y la estación de esquí de Masikryong", comentó.
