North's Archery Team to Visit Incheon for Training Ahead of Asian Games

The North Korean national archery team plans to visit South Korea in late July to train for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games in September, it was reported on Monday.

"The North Korean team will train at Gyeyang Asiad Archery Field in Incheon from late July to early August for two to three weeks," the South Korea Archery Association said on Monday.

The visit is part of training provided by the Olympic Council of Asia for 30 countries, including North Korea, through the organizing committee of the Incheon Asiad.

The Unification Ministry has yet to receive an application from the North.
