The Japanese Government says North Korea’s sports minister, Kim Il Guk, will be allowed to travel to Japan to attend Olympic meetings in Tokyo this week.

North Koreans are banned from entering Japan as part of sanctions imposed for its missile and nuclear tests.

Kim Il Guk, who also serves as the president of the North’s Olympic committee, will travel to Japan to take part in the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly on Wednesday and Thursday.
