    SEOUL: North Korea said on Friday that it will send athletes to this year’s Asian Games in South Korea, the first time it has participated in a major sporting event there for more than a decade and despite simmering cross-border tensions. “The Olympic Committee of the DPRK (North Korea)… decided to dispatch DPRK players’ group” to the Asian Games to be hosted by South Korea’s western port city of Incheon, Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. Incheon welcomed the North’s announcement saying it would help the two Koreas boost reconciliation.
