Kim Jong Un expressed satisfaction with South Korea’s treatment of his sister during a visit to mark the opening of the Winter Olympics, and called for more efforts to improve ties between the countries.

A high-level delegation including the North Korean leader’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, spent three days in South Korea before returning Sunday to Pyongyang. South Korea’s President Moon Jae-In met her four times, and received an invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un for a summit in North Korea’s capital.

Kim Jong Un received the delegation’s report, expressed satisfaction, and said he was impressed by how South Korean representatives prioritized the delegation’s visit and put in “sincere efforts for their convenience,” according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency. Kim gave detailed guidance on how to improve relations with South Korea going forward, the report said.
