The Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea began discussions, through exchanges of letters, on Tuesday on Pyongyang's participation in the ROK-hosted Asian Games next month.

The letter in the name of the Incheon Asian Games organizing committee was sent to its DPRK counterpart through the liaison office at the truce village of Panmunjom, a Unification Ministry official was quoted by local media as saying.

The DPRK sent a letter on Aug 22 outlining its plan to send a 273-member team, including 150 athletes, to the 2014 Asian Games to be held in the ROK western port city of Incheon from Sept 19 to Oct 4.
