WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 (Yonhap) -- The White House said Tuesday that North Korea's participation in the Olympics will be an opportunity for the regime to see the value of getting rid of its nuclear weapons.

A spokesperson for the National Security Council made the remark after North Korea agreed to send a delegation to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics during high-level inter-Korean talks earlier in the day.

"North Korean participation is an opportunity for the regime to see the value of ending its international isolation by denuclearizing," the spokesperson said in emailed comments to Yonhap on condition of anonymity.
