DPRK delegation extends stay in Seoul

A DPRK delegation, paying a condolatory visit to Seoul for late President Kim Dae-jung, has extended its stay in seoul from its scheduled plan to leave on Saturday,  YTN cable TV news said.
   
YTN said the extension might be related to a possible meeting with the South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, Xinhua reported.
   
Earlier reports said the DPRK delegation  has requested on Saturday a meeting with S. Korean President Lee Myung-bak, saying it has brought a message from DPRK leader Kim Jong IL, local media reported.
  
The request came at a meeting between the DPRK delegates and Seoul's Unification Minister Hyun In-taek, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency said. Minister Hyun has reportedly delivered the message to the presidential office, it added.
  
In a related development,  President Lee Myung-bak will decide whether to meet DPRK delegation after he listens to a report on inter-Korean meeting from Unification Minister Hyun, Yonhap said.
  
The DPRK senior delegate Kim Yang Gon said that "inter-Korean relations should be improved soon", Yonhap said.
