A North Korean delegation visiting South Korea reaffirmed that the North was willing to talk with the United States, according to Cheong Wa Dae, Monday.

It added there would be no preconditions* in opening the dialogue.

According to a senior Cheong Wa Dae official, Kim Yong-chol, head of the Workers' Party of Korea's United Front Department, said Pyongyang has already expressed its willingness for talks with Washington multiple times*.

Kim arrived in the South to attend the closing ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, along with seven other officials including Ri Son-gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland.

Kim did not lay out any preconditions for opening the talks*, such as demanding the South and the U.S. recognize the North as a nuclear state, the official said.
