Beijing Olympics chance to revive inter-Korean talks - Seoul

The Beijing Winter Olympics could offer a chance to restore inter-Korean relations, South Korean Unification Minister Lee In-young (pictured) said.

Speaking during a forum co-hosted by his ministry and the Gangwon Provincial Office, he expressed hopes that the Beijing event could mean "a new leap forward for peace" between Seoul and Pyongyang.

We "will focus [...] efforts to resume the Korean Peninsula peace process and make preparations to that end," Lee stated, as translated by Yonhap.
