The rare meeting was held at the presidential office in Seoul, Yonhap news agency reported on Saturday.
Saturday's meeting also involved Kim Yo-jong, the North Korean leader's only sister, Choe Hwi, the chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son-gwon, the head of the North's state agency in charge of inter-Korean affairs.
The North Korean delegation's visit to the South Korean presidential office was the first of its kind since August 2009, when a high-level North Korean delegation made a rare trip here for the funeral of former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, who held the first-ever inter-Korean summit with then North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in 2000.
The North Korean delegation is set to return home Sunday.
