North Korea, South Korea to march under unified flag at Winter Olympics
In what could pave way for peace in the Korean peninsula, North Korea and South Korea have agreed to march together under unified Korea flag at Winter Olympics to be held in in Pyeongchang, South Korea, next month.
Earlier, the international community had welcomed Pyongyang's decision to send its athletes to the Winter Olympics.
North Korea, which boycotted the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, had earlier agreed to send athletes and officials to the event as North and South held their first formal talks in two years at Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) on January 9.
International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach had earlier said Pyongyang's agreement to take part in Pyeongchang was a "great step forward in the Olympic spirit".
North Korea's repeated missiles tests and the testing of a Hydrogen Bomb last year had threatened peace in the region.
