korea with the upcoming meeting. bill, what can we expect? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, frances. it's pretty cold here, too. and there's been a chill in relations between north and south korea, of course, for decades. but signs of a thaw. tomorrow morning at 10:00, on the world's most dangerous border in a place called the peace house, five delegates from each side will sit down for the first talks in two years. now, on the agenda, item number one will be the olympics. being held in south korea next month, north korea would like to send a delegation, two world class skaters. they have to negotiate that. but it's really item two that's the important one, and that's relations between the two koreas. it doesn't mean that north korea's nuclear program will be discussed, but the man who will lead south korea's delegation said today he hopes to broaden the talks to talk about, well, things like families that were
split by the korean war decades ago, and also broader humanitarian issues. but really, this is about politics. it's about decreasing tensions on the korean peninsula. president trump says he supports the talks. he's 100% behind them. people here a little more skeptical. they're worried about kim jong-un's motives. they're not sure whether his real intention isn't to divide south korea from the united states, or perhaps to use these talks as a stepping stone to washington. that may be a good outcome. that's what president trump is hinting at. but these talks really historic, a great opportunity, a small window of opportunity, but also, guys, a great risk because this is a very tense time. nuclear weapons, obviously the key worry both here and across the world, but it will begin with discussions simply about the olympics that start next month here in south korea.
