Vice President Mike Pence and Karen Pence will lead the USA delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The IOC is scheduled to convene a four-party meeting on January 20 in the Swiss city, involving a delegation from the Pyeongchang 2018 Organizing Committee and high-ranking officials from the two Koreas, to decide on the participation of North Korean athletes, given that all the deadlines for registration have already passed. Reuters reported on Friday that South Korea has offered to combine their women's ice hockey team with North Korea's team, with the team competing jointly.

South Korea's unification ministry and sports and tourism ministry both said they have no knowledge of the matter.

North Korea has yet to comment on the South's offer, which is in the spirit of the original deal and even goes beyond it.

January 10, 2018 (EIRNS)-The North and South Korean delegations issued a joint statement after yesterday's meeting in Panmunjom. For now, the military talks would focus on finding a way to ease cross-border tensions before the opening of the Olympics, the official said but he kept open the possibility that the talks would be developed into a discussion of more serious issues, such as the two Koreas' cross-border propaganda broadcasts, and possibly, upcoming South Korea-U.S. joint military exercises. The two teams even played each other, with the South defeating the North 3-0 in division play.
