SEOUL, Jan. 7 (Yonhap) -- North Korea notified the South on Sunday that it will send a five-member delegation led by Ri Son-gwon, point man on inter-Korean affairs, to high-level talks to be held this week, Seoul officials said.

The two Koreas agreed Friday to hold their first formal talks in more than two years Tuesday at the border village of Panmunjom to discuss Pyongyang's possible participation in the Feb. 9-25 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

On Saturday, Seoul proposed sending a five-member delegation led by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon.

In response, the North sent a message that it will also dispatch five representatives led by Ri, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea, a state agency in charge of inter-Korean affairs, according to South Korea's unification ministry.
