SEOUL - The Republic of Korea's President Moon Jae-in met Friday with the head of a high-ranking delegation from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), local TV footage showed.

Moon greeted and shook hands with Kim Yong-nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, at a reception for leader-level guests visiting the country to attend the opening ceremony of the 23rd Winter Olympics.

The reception was held in Pyeongchang county, the Winter Olympic venue in eastern ROK, just two hours before the opening ceremony begins at 8 pm local time (1100 GMT).

Kim, the top DPRK legislator, arrived in the ROK earlier in the day via a private jet, leading a ranking delegation that includes Kim Yo-jong, a younger sister of top DPRK leader Kim Jong-un who serves as the first vice director of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea.

Included in the DPRK delegation are Choe Hwi, chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son-gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland.

The four DPRK delegates will have a meeting and lunch with President Moon Saturday, according to ROK's presidential Blue House.
