they said they will send a high level delegation, athletes, performing arts groups. south korea has asked that the two countries even march together in the opening and closing ceremonies although it's not clear if north korea agreed to that. north korea gets out of this looking fairly reasonable compared to their previous behavior of launching missiles and conducting nuclear tests. >> did the issue of north korea's nuclear weapons come up at all? >> reporter: yeah, you would definitely say that was the nuclear elephant in the room. it did not come up besides just a very brief mention by the south koreans that they would like future talks that touch on issues such as military conflicts and the denuclearization of peninsula. we're told the north koreans did not respond to that statement at all, but they appeared to be listening closely. >> all right. ben tracy in seoul. thank you so much. in this country, special
