Following a successful diplomatic career, Kim entered North Korean political circles, heavily controlled by the regime, in 1970 and then rose to prominence in the 80s. They also noted that the Korean army, led by Kim Il-sung, achieved a miraculous victory over the "US imperialistic forces and its allies".

The DPRK is planning to conduct a military parade celebrating the anniversary of its army.

Kim's planned visit to the South reflects North Korea's "resolve for an improvement of relations between the South and the North and a successful hosting of the Olympics, and has shown a serious and honest attitude", spokesman Kim Eui Kyeom said.

Fred Warmbier will attend as the guest of Vice President Mike Pence, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

Both Koreas will march under one flag at the opening ceremony.

As such he is often called the ceremonial leader of North Korea, and in theory power is shared between himself, Premier Pak Pong Ju, and Kim Jong Un - though in reality all power rests with the ruling family.

"You'll see (Pence) highlight reality of what's happening in North Korea, despite propaganda tactics", the official said.

"If Trump does not get rid of his anachronistic and dogmatic way of thinking, it will only bring about the effect of further endangering security and future of the United States", the government said in comments carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

According to Seoul's unification ministry, the DPRK will send its 140-member Samjiyon orchestra Tuesday on the Mangyongbong-92 ferry and use it as an accommodation for the art troupe.

Pyongyang proposed that its delegation use the Mangyongbong 92, a ferry that usually operates between North Korea and Russian Federation, for transportation and as accommodation for the group, according to the South's unification ministry.

As well as the ice hockey players, its athletes will compete in skiing and figure skating events.

The embassy will also host receptions to welcome the British delegations to the Olympics and the Paralympics.

The Winter Olympics begin February 8 and conclude with the closing ceremony February 25.

It was also confirmed that Fred Warmbier, the father of Otto Warmbier, an American student who was jailed in North Korea and who died past year after returning to the United States, will attend the opening ceremonies as a guest of Pence.

The Koreas' reconciliation mood follows a year of heightened tensions over North Korea's advancing nuclear and missile programs.

President Donald Trump's right-hand man also said the U.S. hopes to ensure North Korea "doesn't use the powerful symbolism and the backdrop of the Olympics to paper over the truth about their regime".

The spokesman noted that the DPRK showed its honest and earnest attitude by dispatching its top legislator, saying South Korea will warmly and courteously greet the DPRK's high-ranking delegation, including the top legislator, as a host country of the Winter Olympics.
