South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will hold a working-level dialogue next week to discuss the DPRK's participation in the Winter Paralympics, Seoul's unification ministry said Friday.

South Korea offered Tuesday to hold the working-level talks, and the DPRK accepted the proposal earlier in the day, according to the unification ministry.

The dialogue will be held from 10 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) on Feb. 27 at Tongilgak, a DPRK building in the truce village of Panmunjom, which straddles the two Koreas.

The DPRK already sent its athletes and cheerleaders to the South Korea-hosted Winter Olympics, which is going on at the country's eastern county of PyeongChang.
