North Korean state media made the announcement Friday upon a decision by the North's Olympic committee,.. which added they were taking all the steps necessary to participate.
The South Korean government had said earlier this year that North Korean athletes were welcome at the games.
They run from September 19th through October 4th.
This will be Pyongyang's fourth straight appearance since 2002 Asian Games Busan.
