GENEVA, Jan 21, 2018 (AFP)

North Korea will send 22 athletes to next month’s Winter Games in the South, the International Olympic Committee said Thursday, also confirming that the two nations will march together at the opening ceremony.

IOC President Thomas Bach said the athletes will compete in a total of three sports in Pyeongchang and announced that the IOC had approved a plan for North and South to field a unified women’s hockey team.

“Today marks a milestone in a long journey,” the IOC chief told reporters following a meeting in Lausanne with sport and government officials from North and South Korea.
