North Korea has accepted an offer to attend high-level talks next week, South Korean officials have said.

The meeting, on 9 January, will focus on finding a way for North Korean athletes to attend the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea in February.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said this week that sending a delegation to the Games would be "a good opportunity to show unity" among North Koreans.

The meeting is expected to be held at Panmunjom, on the border.

The so-called peace village, in the heavily guarded demilitarised zone (DMZ), is where the two sides have historically held talks.
