Seoul [South Korea], Feb 10 (ANI): North Korea leader Kim Jong-un's sister Kim Yo-jong on Saturday said Seoul feels familiar even though it is her first-ever visit to the South, the media reported.

"It doesn't feel unfamiliar," Yonhap news agency quoted her as replying to Gangwon province Governor Choi Moon-soon's question how she felt about Seoul.

Kim said this while attending a dinner in Gangneung, the sub-host city of the Olympics, hosted by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon for North Korea's high-level delegation.

"As the Olympics were opened successfully with applause from North and South Korea, we believe the games will pave the way for the two sides' reconciliation and stronger inter-Korean ties and furthermore for Koreans' unity and unification," Kim said.

The delegation is on a three-day visit to South Korea to attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Games.

Earlier in the day, Kim Yo-jong, the North ruler's special envoy, in a letter extended an invitation to South Korea President Moon Jae-in to visit Pyongyang.(ANI)
