South Korea has accepted North Korea’s offer
to send a cheering squad to the Incheon Asian Games in mid-September.
Seoul’s unification ministry said Monday… that it will take steps to prepare for the
hosting of the North Korean athletes and the cheering squad,… in accordance with international
practices. If all goes to plan, it would be the fourth
time for the North to send a cheering squad to a sporting event in South Korea.
The last time a squad visited was nine years ago during the 2005 Asian Athletics Championships
also held in Incheon. Pundits expect around one hundred cheerleaders
to visit the Incheon games.
