KBS President Kim In-kyu will visit North Korea on Tuesday as the chief of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. Unification Ministry deputy spokeswoman Park Soo-jin said Monday Kim's application to visit North Korea was approved.
The ABU chief will be in Pyongyang from Tuesday to Thursday to discuss whether to give North Korea the right to broadcast the London Olympics there, and whether North Korean delegation will attend the ABU assembly in Seoul.
A source said while Kim's visit is ostensibly about the broadcasting rights for the London Olympics, Kim may be delivering a special message from President Lee Myung-bak. Kim was Lee's secretary for media relations during his presidential election campaign.
