North Korea's International Olympics Committee (IOC) official said it is considering South Korea's proposal for a united female hockey team, Yonhap news agency reported on Saturday (Jan 13).

The ministry said the hermit state is apparently keen to discuss logistics of the performers' trip to the South before planning its athletes and supporters' attendance at the Games.

The IOC has said it will host a four-party meeting to decide on the participation of North Korea in the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games to be held in South Korea in February.

The South Korean defense ministry began preparations for military talks and is expected to propose a date and venue for the agreed-upon meeting via the restored inter-Korean military hotline later this week or next week."We have to start from easy issues and proceed gradually", a senior South Korean defense official said.

Pyongyang Suggests Sending Performance Group to Olympics - Reports

During the talks, which are the first to take place between the North and South in more than two years, South Korea's second vice-minister for tradition, sports activities and tourism brought up the possibility of combining the women's ice hockey team.

The President of the Olympic Council of Asia, Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, believes the power of sport to unite the world is in evidence again following DPR Korea's agreement to attend the Olympic Winter Games in the Republic of Korea next month.

"The OCA is heartened by the announcement on Tuesday and looks forward to seeing the flags of two of our member National Olympic Committees flying high together at PyeongChang 2018". Cross-country skiers and speed skaters are understood to be among those who could benefit. The two teams even played each other, with the South defeating the North 3-0 in division play. In 1991, they joined forces at the World Table Tennis championships and the football under-20 World Cup.

For the Pyeongchang hockey competition, Roh said South Korea wouldn't cut home-grown players from its squad in favour of North Koreans.
