The talks were held at the border village of Panmunjom or "truce village," in the Korean peninsula's heavily fortified demilitarized zone DMZ.
North Korea concurred to sending a "high-level delegation" which will include athletes, a cheering squad, an art troupe, a visitors' group, a Taekwondo demonstration team and a press corps, reported CNN, saying South Korea's vice unification minister, Chun Hae-sung, as saying.
The minister also announced that both the sides plan to re-open a military hotline, which was one of many that were shut as inter-Korean relations strained, on the western Korean Peninsula, the report said.
The five-member North Korean delegation travelled to the border in a motorcade. This was the two countries' first face-to-face talks since December 2015, according to the reports.
The Winter Olympics is scheduled to take place at South Korea's Pyeongchang from February 9-25.
