U.S. gave Seoul last-minute green light for chartered flight to North Korea: MOU

South says Washington approved potentially sanctions-breaking trip to DPRK

Washington early Wednesday morning issued a last-minute approval of Seoul’s plan to send a South Korean national carrier to North Korea for an inter-Korean ski training event, the Ministry of Unification (MOU) said on Wednesday.

Skiers from the two Koreas are set to hold a two-day joint training session at North Korea's Masikryong Ski Resort starting today, with the South Korean team having flown on a chartered flight to the DPRK's Kalma airport this morning.
