SEOUL, March 9 (Yonhap) -- South Korea approved a plan to use a government fund to financially support North Korea's participation in the PyeongChang Winter Paralympics, the unification ministry said Friday.

The government deliberative committee for the inter-Korean cooperation fund approved some 130 million won (US$121,370) in spending from the government budget for inter-Korean cooperation to pay the Paralympic bills for Pyongyang, the ministry said.

The fund will cover the costs of accommodation and goods for the North Korean delegation.

A 24-member North Korean delegation, including athletes and officials, arrived in South Korea on Wednesday to attend the games, which will open later Friday.
