What to know about the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang

Three Malaysian Internet Stars Will Represent Malaysia For Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Torch Relay US friends meet on N.Korea but China absence looms

South Korean Sports Ministry spokesman Hwang Seong Un the two countries are planning to form a joint women's ice hockey team.

A 140-member North Korean orchestra will perform in South Korea during next month's Winter Olympics, amid a tentative rapprochement after months of tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear programme.

North and South Korea have held talks to discuss Pyongyang's participation at the Winter Olympics.

The North has said its delegation to the Winter Games in Pyeongchang would include artists, officials and journalists, as well as athletes.

The two Koreas are also set to hold talks with the International Olympics Committee (IOC) in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Saturday over how the North's athletes will participate in the games.

In a bid to ease any fears, the Korean Sport and Olympic Committee (KSOC) are hoping to expand their squad size from 23 to 35 to accommodate athletes from North Korea.

Stories suggested she was romantically involved with Kim before he married his wife Ri Sol Ju, herself a former performer and a member of North Korea's cheer squad known as the "army of beauties" in South Korean media.

Just ahead of Monday's meeting, North Korea issued a statement criticising South Korea's President Moon Jae-in for praising Trump's role in helping re-open talks. North Korea also sent highly trained female cheering groups dressed in bright, attractive outfits when it attended previous global sports events in South Korea.

Another speculation is that this money could have been hidden to convert it into legal currency through foreign companies. Police also raided three hotels from where 11 people including Santosh Yadav, a professor, were arrested, he said.

As to why the Samjiyon Orchestra was chosen, Cha Du Hyeogn, a visiting research fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, said, "I believe North Korea refrained from sending the Moranbong Band because if it performs alongside sophisticated pop stars from South Korea, it may be overshadowed".

North Koreans have expressed their "vehement resentment" and doubts on whether Pyongyang should send a "sacred delegation" to the 2018 Winter Olympics due to the slanted reports, the article claims. The warning is relatively milder than the North's typical fiery, bellicose rhetoric and it didn't appear to put the recent signs of warming Korean ties in imminent danger.

One of the North Korean delegates to the talks was Hyon Song Wol, the head of the band, fueling speculation that North Korea might send the band.

10- North Korea, meanwhile, has reiterated that the return of a dozen citizens who entered South Korea in 2016.is a precondition for resuming reunions of separated families.

This diplomatic overture credited increasing sanctions levied by the United States and United Nations over North Korea with pushing them toward diplomacy, rather than a continuation of their aggressive rhetoric.

The decision was reached following a high level meeting, involving Ri Son-gwon, North Korea's chief delegate and Cho Myoung-gyon, South Korea's Unification Minister.

Although South Korea is likely to accept the offer, the official was cautious in confirming the response.

When travelling overseas, however, North Korean athletes and coaches tend to cloister themselves away from outsiders when they are not competing or practicing. He said more discussions are expected to work out details of North Korean performances.
