North Korea appears to have held a low-key military parade, a day ahead of the opening of the Winter Olympics in the South, South Korean media say.

The North often boasts of its parades but reports of this one appeared to surface after it had taken place.

This event is usually held in April and moving it had been seen as a setback to the warming of ties over the Olympics.

But the South announced on Thursday its president would meet the North’s Olympics delegation on Saturday.

Moon Jae-in will have lunch with the 22-strong team, which will include the North’s ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong-nam, and Kim Yo-jong, the influential sister of leader Kim Jong-un.
