That would mark the first such outreach from North Korea, which backed out of a potential meeting with Vice President Mike Pence at the Winter Olympics in South Korea last month.

The delegation, announced by Moon's office on Sunday, is the latest chapter in a remarkable Olympics-driven detente between the two Koreas.

The South Korean presidential spokesman added: "Especially, (the delegation) will hold discussions on the creation of conditions for North Korea-US dialogue aimed at denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and the development of South-North Korea relations".

The Blue House said in a statement that National Security Office (NSO) head Chung Eui-yong and National Intelligence Service (NIS) chief Suh Hoon - a veteran of past negotiations with the North - would be among the 10-member South Korean delegation visiting Pyongyang.

The younger Kim met with Moon in Seoul, conveying the DPRK leader's invitation to the South Korean president to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time.

This photo, taken February 5, 2018, shows National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon visiting the National Assembly in Seoul.

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe told Roll Call that South Korea has "gotten soft" and isn't taking North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un seriously enough.

Moon was even personally invited to Pyongyang by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister.

Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.), has 50 cosponsors in the House. Overall, more than 10,000 civilians have died and more than 40,000 have been injured over the course of this war.

Following the trip, the delegation would fly to the United States to report on the talks to officials in Washington, Yoon said.

"Now we're talking. They, by the way, called up a couple of days ago, they said 'we would like to talk, '" Trump said.

The talks between the two Koreas come after North Korea had sent a almost 500-member delegation to the just-concluded Pyeongchang Winter Games in South Korea last month.

South Korea is to send its national security chief to Pyongyang on Monday to discuss how to resume dialogue between the USA and North Korea over its nuclear and weapons programme.

The North has stressed that it had no intention of abandoning its nuclear arsenal, hailed by Kim as a "treasured sword of justice" to protect his nation from potential invasion by the US.

The last known South Korean special envoy to travel to Pyongyang was the country's intelligence chief, who visited a few months before the 2007 summit. "And I said, 'so would we, but you have to denuke'".

Apparently, the North Korean regime was able to avoid global sanctions by mining or stealing bitcoin, according to some experts.
