North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been briefed by the high-level delegation dispatched to South Korea for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

In the meeting with the delegation on Monday, Kim reportedly said that it is important to continue building good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by inter-Korean exchanges during the Olympics.  

The North's official Korean Central News Agency(KCNA) said on Tuesday that Kim issued directions on ways to improve bilateral ties and ordered related authorities to produce follow-up measures.

The KCNA said that Kim expressed satisfaction after the briefing and appreciated South Korea's warm reception and support for the North Korean delegates during their stay.
 
Kim's sister Kim Yo-jong and the North's nominal chief of state Kim Yong-nam, who led the delegation, reported details of the trip, along with Choe Hwi, chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son-gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland.
