Former first lady Lee Hee-ho, the widow of President Kim Dae-jung, has received the green light for a visit from North Korea.
She will stay at Paekhwawon, the North's state guesthouse and visit two daycare centers for children there.
Kim Sung-jae of the Kim Dae-jung Peace Center said Friday that his delegation met with officials from North Korea's Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which handles cross-border affairs, to lay the groundwork for her trip.
Kim said he told the North that Lee would like to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and that the two sides agreed to meet again to confirm the date of her visit.
