The two Koreas are set to begin exchanging opinions on a variety of issues related to North Korea's participation in the upcoming Asian Games in South Korea's western port city of Incheon.
A South Korean government official said Sunday that communications between the two sides will likely start at the beginning of the week.
One subject of discussion could involve the question of whether the South will shoulder the cost of the North's participation, as Pyongyang has requested.
The North Korean government notified Seoul last Friday that it would dispatch a 273-member delegation, including 150 athletes.
The two sides have agreed to discuss the details of the North's participation through an exchange of letters.
This year's Asian Games kick off in Incheon on September 19th.
