Duckworth: 'No such thing as a surgical strike' in North Korea

The team will march together under a unified peninsula flag at the opening ceremony, a joint statement released by Seoul's unification ministry said. The neighbours, which opened long-dormant communications to organise the North's participation, have agreed to field a united team in the women's ice hockey.

The talk happens one month prior to the Winter Olympics held in Pyeongchang, South Korea regarding the situation and unity of the two countries.

Rex Tillerson said the United States supports rapprochement between North and South Korea, which announced yesterday they'd march under a common flag at next month's Olympics in South Korea.

It is not the first time that North and South Korea have marched together under the same flag at the Olympics.

Tillerson was expected to push participating countries, all of whom were invited due to their support for South Korea during the Korean War, to help stop North Korean smuggling by sea.

"There are many considerations with regard to the impact of these proposals on the other participating NOCs (national Olympic committees) and athletes".

The South Korean team recently returned to the country after holding a training camp in the United States.

The two Koreas have sent joint teams to major worldwide sports events twice previously, both in 1991.

Canada and the USA are co-hosting the one-day meeting, which was called in response to concerns about North Korea's growing nuclear and ballistic-missile capabilities.

The talks at the border last weekend marked the first time the nations have spoken in two years.

The potential move has garnered the support of South Korea president Moon Jae-in, who said during a meeting with his country's athletes on Wednesday that a joint hockey team would be a historic event that moves the hearts of people around the world.

In a new interview with Reuters, President Donald Trump had surprisingly harsh words regarding Russia's relationship with North Korea - lauding China's efforts to help cease advancements in North Korea's nuclear program, but condemning Russia's. Pyongyang, which has rattled the worldwide community with its nuclear and missile tests in recent months, has agreed to send athletes to the Games and march with the South under one flag at the opening ceremony. Kim Jong Un's wife, Ri Sol Ju, was a member of a 2005 squad.

But sports diplomacy has never led to a lasting political thaw on the Korean Peninsula, which has remained technically in a state of war since the 1950-53 Korean War was halted with a truce. Important feedback, he says, about the economic sanctions against North Korea.

North Korea also proposed that its delegation travel by land through Kaesong, which lies on the main road from Pyongyang to Seoul.

During recent inter-Korean talks, Pyongyang accepted Seoul's invitation to join in the Olympic Games, and the two sides agreed to engage in further military talks to avoid the potential for conflict.
