N. KOREA TO SEND CHEERLEADERS TO SOUTH

0

SEOUL: North Korea said on Monday it would send a cheerleading squad to the coming Asian Games in South Korea, as it issued a fresh call for improved ties with Seoul following a series of missile tests. A government statement carried by the North’s official KCNA news agency said the dispatch of the cheering delegation for the September 19 to October 4 Asian Games in Incheon would “help melt frozen North-South relations.” The North has sent such squads to the South before, most recently for the 2005 Asian Athletics Championships in Incheon, when one of the cheerleaders was Ri Sol-Ju, now the wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. The South’s Unification Ministry said preparations would be made to host the North Korean athletes and the cheering squad.
