North Korea has informed South Korea that it wants to send a 273-strong contingent to the Asian Games in Incheon next month. They include 150 athletes taking part in 14 events.
Unification Ministry spokesman Kim Eui-do told reporters Friday that North Korean Olympic Committee Vice Chairman Son Kwang-ho notified the South in a letter.
North Korea on Aug. 13 applied the Olympic Council of Asia to send 352 people to the Asian Games, but now the North seems to have cut around 80 non-athletes from the list.
