South Korea's vice culture minister is likely to lead a South Korean delegation for working-level inter-Korean talks on North Korea's participation in the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
An official at South Korea's Unification Ministry said on Thursday that the working-level talks will be led by the Culture Ministry and the PyeongChang Olympics organizing committee, and the government thinks it would be natural for Vice Culture Minister Roh Tae-kang to lead Seoul's delegation for the talks.
The vice minister was among the five-member delegation for Tuesday's high-level inter-Korean talks.
If Roh is named Seoul's chief delegate, his North Korean counterpart Won Kil-u is likely to head the North Korean delegation. Won also participated in the high-level talks.
The Seoul government expects the working-level talks will be held next week.
