North Korea proposes Feb 8 and 11 concert dates in South Korea: MOU

First concert date matches day of likely Pyongyang military parade

North Korea has suggested holding a concert in South Korea on February 8, the eve of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and another on February 11, the South Korean Ministry of Unification (MOU) said in a statement on Wednesday.

The proposals are the latest sign of an ongoing but still fragile process of inter-Korean rapprochement surrounding the winter games, which South Korea will be hosting throughout February and March.
