South Korea: Koreas to march under «united» flag at Winter Olympics

South and North Korea agreed to march under a common flag at the 2018 Winter Opening Ceremony, South Korean Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung announced in a press conference in Seoul on Wednesday, following talks between both sides in the Demilitarised Zone. The «united» flag represents aspirations of South and North to end Korean seven- decade division. The decision reportedly has... Еще received support from South Korea's president Moon Jae-in. The intention is yet to be approved at the International Olympic Committee's meeting on Saturday, and it is complicated by the fact that North Korea missed a deadline to register their participation in the Olympics. Previously, North Korea has offered to send a 230-member cheerleading squad to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang as well as 150-member delegation including athletes and cheerleaders to the Paralympics in March 9-18. North and South Korean officials also discussed fielding a joint women's ice hockey team.
