A religious delegation from South Korea landed in Pyongyang on Saturday to mark an anniversary celebrated by Buddhists on both sides of the DMZ border (Demilitarised Zone between two countries).
APTN North Korea filmed the Buddhists at the airport where they were met by North Korean Buddhist Sim Sang Jin the Director of Central Committee of DPRK (Democratic People''s Republic of Korea) Buddhist Association.
The group is expected to visit the ancient Pohyon Temple in the mountains northwest of the North Korean capital.
Buddhists from both Koreas are to take part in a service marking the 1,000th anniversary of the engraving of the Tripitaka Koreana.
The 80-thousand woodblocks designed to print Buddhist scripture are considered sacred by Buddhists across the Korean peninsula and are revered by both Koreas as a relic of their shared heritage.
Relations between the two Koreas have been tense since South Korean President Lee Myung-bak took office in 2008 with a tougher policy on the North than his two liberal predecessors.
Two attacks on the South last year that killed 50 people, the sinking of a warship and an artillery attack on a front-line island, further strained ties.
Pyongyang denies torpedoing the ship.
Lee''s administration has forbidden its citizens to visit North Korea without government permission.
However, the Unification Ministry in Seoul said the group of 37 was granted permission to attend the religious ceremony for a five-day trip that began on Saturday.
The group is led by Venerable Jaseung, head of the Jogye Order in Seoul.
They are expected to visit two other temples near Pyongyang.
