    SEOUL: North Korea is set to send its women’s team to the East Asian championships hosted by their arch-rivals South Korea next month, football officials said on Friday. It will be the first time North Korean footballers have visited the South since 2009, and comes as Pyongyang has embarked on a diplomatic offensive after months of heightened military tensions on the peninsula. The North’s squad will compete with South Korea, China and Japan in the women’s tournament from July 20, the (South) Korea Football Association (KFA) said.
