North Korea considering Seoul's proposal for joint female hockey team at Olympics

"There were things which went well and did not go well", Chang Ung said following his discussions of North Korea's plan to join the games with IOC President Thomas Bach and other officials in Switzerland.

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.

North Korea's International Olympic Committee representative said Saturday there is still work left to be done for the country's participation in next month's Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

Hyon Song-Wol, leader of the popular Moranbong band, is one of four North Korean delegates set to attend the talks in the truce village of Panmunjom on Monday.

A joint march at the opening ceremony would be a stunning statement for the so-dubbed "Peace Olympics", which will open about 80 kms from the heavily fortified Korean border on February 9. Reuters reported on Friday that South Korea has offered to combine their women's ice hockey team with North Korea's team, with the team competing jointly.

Haitian-Americans in South Florida outraged by president's alleged remark
The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust. At a forum Friday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Ryan, R-Wis., said, "We just have to get it done".

On Jan 20, both sides will meet at the IOC's Lausanne headquarters to discuss details of their participation. "Since there have been few exchanges between the two Koreas, there are many minor issues to be dealt with".

The North said it will inform the South of a date to discuss sending athletes and a cheering squad to the PyeongChang Olympics at a later time.

However, the International Olympic Committee has said it will consider offering wildcards to North Korean athletes.

The White House said Wednesday that Pence will attend the opening ceremonies of the games, scheduled for February 9 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

South Korea has qualified skaters in ice dance, men's singles and women's singles.
