North Korea Intends To Send A Big Delegation To The Winter Olympics
It was on Tuesday when North and South Korea held an official conference to discuss a number of important issues. Despite the fact that the U.S was supposed to be a part of the talks, it was struck out, a matte that send a lot of people around the globe into speculation.
It was pleasant news for many to learn that North Korea would be participating in the winter season Olympics set to take place in Pyeongchang .Reports indicate that North Korea will be sending out some athelests, a Taekwondo demonstration workforce, an art troupe and above all a cheering squad.
A person familiar with the matter said, “North Korean figure-skating duo Ryom Tae-okay and Kim Ju-sik competent for the Olympics in September, on the other hand the country’s Olympic Committee unsuccessful to register them by the October deadline.”
The Worldwide Olympic Committee recently made a statement revealing its willingness to have North Korea participate in the competition. It increased the deadline for the controversial country which has time and gains put the entire world at the edge with a series of its nuclear tests.
The president of the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee, Lee Hee-beom disclosed that the North Korean athletes would easily enter the South by crossing the armed Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Incase they do so, it will mark the very first time for the North Korean athletes to have made their way to the formal sporting function in South Korea by land. However, it won’t be prolonged for the non-athlete delegation users and it is critical to point out that people are still left with a lot of unanswered questions in line with why the North Korean leader has lately been putting up the show of a statesman. It is unusual of him, but all we can do at the moment is just to wait and see.
The plans underway are that South Korea will soon be welcoming North Korea and when it gets to the point of making their entry-the South Korean government will let them arrive by highway.
