North Korean leader Kim Jong-un welcomed back the high-level delegation that he had sent to the South for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
According to North Korean state media reports, he said he was satisfied with the outcomes of their trip, and also expressed gratitude towards South Korea for hosting them.
Moreover, he stated his desire to continue improving inter-Korean relations.
He said, "it is important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by the Winter Olympics as a momentum."
He is also said to have given important instructions "to take practical measures for it."
The delegation was led by the North's nominal head of the state, Kim Yong-nam, and Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo-jung.
They returned to Pyongyang on Monday after a four-day trip, during which they met with President Moon Jae-in a number of times and delivered Kim's invitation to visit the North.
President Moon said in response that he hoped the right conditions are met so that such a visit could go ahead.
North Korean state media also reported on Tuesday that Kim welcomed back the arts troupe that had been sent to the South as well.
He congratulated them on their successful performances and thanked them for conveying the 'warm mind' of the North Korean people, who wish for a successful Winter Olympics, as well as reconciliation.
He was also said to have been pleased that the South Korean people, as well as President Moon, responded warmly to the troupe's performances.
