DPRK Olympic team to cross border by land route

Here's what it's like to live in PyeongChang South Here's what it's like to live in PyeongChang South

"The IOC today has taken exceptional decisions and has allocated additional quotas for 22 athletes from the NOC of the DPRK who will compete in three sports and five disciplines", announced Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee.

A senior Cheong Wa Dae official made the remarks on Sunday, saying that the formation of the joint ice hockey team seems to have been arranged rationally.

The talks would have centered around North Korea's plans to send a 550-delegation to South Korea for next month's Winter Olympics. It is part of a North Korean Olympic delegation that also includes athletes, officials, journalists, a cheering group and a taekwondo demonstration team. "We have two goals, namely military safe passage guarantees with North Korea's participation or the easing of tensions at the Military Demarcation Line which might disrupt that", the source explained.

Charles Shoebridge said U.S. policy in the era of Donald Trump was proving a distraction from ongoing talks between North and South Korea. The flag is to be carried by two athletes, one from each side. In addition to the hockey team, the two countries will conduct some activities in North Korea, including a joint cultural event at Mount Geumgang and training for skiers from both countries at the Masikryong ski resort on the east coast.

"Let us not forget that such an agreement would have seemed impossible only a few weeks ago", Bach said, in an apparent reference to the feverish tension triggered past year by the North's repeated missile tests.

Pyongyang said the remarks it took issue with were in the vein of "the US desperately trying to reverse the trend of detente and improvement of inter-Korean relations", seemingly referring to the breakthrough surrounding the Winter Olympics, according to a statement from North Korea's Permanent Mission to the UN.

The US has stressed it will not only apply pressure economically and diplomatically, but is also ready to issue military threats in a bid to force North Korea to disarm.

Asked about her impression of the trip here by a pool reporter of the Ministry of Unification press corps, she just smiled and did not give an answer. The two Koreas haven't competed under a single banner since 1991.

North Korea will send the 140-member Samjiyon Orchestra to South Korea for concerts in Seoul and the eastern city of Gangneung during the Games.

"The Olympic Winter Games Pyeongchang 2018 are hopefully opening the door to a brighter future on the Korean peninsula, and inviting the world to join in a celebration of hope".

The women's hockey team will skate under a unification flag and compete as Korea, dropping the geographical designations of each country.
