MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The delegation of North Korea to the closing ceremony of Winter Olympics in South Korea's Pyeongchang includes diplomats specializing in nuclear issues and relations with the United States, the local media reported Saturday.

Seoul is "paying attention to what message [the North Korean delegation] will convey" on their three-day visit, Yonhap news agency reported, citing a government source.

The delegation is expected to arrive in South Korea on Sunday and attend the closing ceremony on the same day.

The relations between Seoul and Pyongyang have grown tense in the last year, in particular over North Korea's nuclear program.
