N.K. delegation in Seoul for joint workers' football match

 

A North Korean delegation arrived in South Korea on Friday to take part in a planned inter-Korean workers' football match on the weekend.

 

The 64-member delegation, led by Ju Yong Gil, head of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea, arrived at the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) office in Paju, Gyeonggido, at about 10:25am.

 

They were greeted by Kim Myoung Hwan and Kim JuYoung, heads of South Korea's two major umbrella labor groups: the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) and the Federation of Korean Trade Unions (FKTU), respectively.

 

They will hold a joint press conference at the Walker Hill Hotel in eastern Seoul with the KCTU and FKTU counterparts as the first official itinerary of their 3-day visit.

 

The representatives from the two Koreas will then join a welcoming dinner later in the evening, where Seoul Mayor Park Won Soon will deliver a congratulatory speech.

 

The football match is set to begin at Seoul's Sangam World Cup Stadium at 4:00pm on Saturday, with about 30,000 citizens and laborers from both the South and the North expected to be present.
