North Korea and South Korea will be under one flag at the Olympics-2018

Very soon in Pyeongchang will start the main start of four years: the winter Olympics. It will be remarkable the fact that for the first time North Korea and South Korea have agreed on a partial Association to the Olympics and the opening ceremony will take place under one flag.

In early January, talks were held between the DPRK and South Korea, through which North Korean athletes will still take part in the Olympics 2018 in Pyeongchang. Now, in the village of Panmujom took a new stage of communication between the representatives of the countries, which resulted in the partial merger of the parties.

First, as the BBC reports, the opening ceremony of the Games of the delegation team will appear together under a common flag. This will most likely be the same flag under which teams were at the Olympics in 2000, 2004 and 2006. We will remind that after that, even the sports relations of the DPRK and South Korea was ruined.

Another result of the negotiations was the decision to combine teams for performances in the women’s hockey tournament. Previously, teams were not included in the elite division, however, due to the fact that South Korea is the host country of the Olympics, she won the right to declare his national team.
