Ministry Approves N. Korean Taekwondo Demo Team's Visit to Muju Tournament

The Unification Ministry has approved North Korean athletes to travel to South Korea to take part in the World Taekwondo Championships opening in Muju, North Jeolla Province this Saturday. 
 
The ministry said Monday that it approved a visit to the South by a group of 32 North Koreans including North Korean leaders of the International Taekwondo Federation. The team will visit South Korea from Friday to July first. 
 
It's the first time a North Korean taekwondo demonstration team is performing at an event in the South. 
 
The World Taekwondo Federation earlier said that it received papers from the North Korean team and submitted an application to the Unification Ministry for approval of their cross-border visit. 
 
The Korean martial art of taekwondo has developed separately in the two Koreas with the South Korea-led World Taekwondo Federation and the North-led International Taekwondo Federation.
