North Korea to send athletes to Winter Olympics

January 11, 2018

North Korea has announced it will send high-ranking officials and athletes to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Five senior officials from each side met at the three-storey Peace House on the South Korean side of the Panmunjom truce village from 10am local time.

The South also proposed athletes from both nations march together at the Games’ opening ceremony and participate in other joint activities during the Games, Chun said.

Some officials were even hoping the two Koreas may even march under a single flag at the Winter Games, which would be the first time in more than a decade the two Koreas united under one flag at a sporting event opening.

The 2018 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXIII Olympic Winter Games and commonly known as PyeongChang 2018, is scheduled to take place from 9 to 25 February 2018 in Pyeongchang County, South Korea.
