Trump The Winter Olympics

South Korean President Moon Jae-in lavished praise on President Donald Trump for making a "huge" contribution to bringing North and South Korea together for landmark talks.
After the first intra-Korean talks in over two years, the President indicated the United States would be willing to speak to North Korea “under the right circumstances,” although it was far from clear whether this would pay dividends.
According to the South China Morning Post, in a joint statement the North pledged to send a large delegation to next month’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the South, but made a “strong complaint” after Seoul proposed talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
South Korea asked its neighbor to halt hostile acts that stoke tension on the peninsula, and in return, the North agreed that peace should be guaranteed in the region.
South Korea announced it will march under a unified Korean flag, according to Reuters Sports. The BBC reported the two nations have also agreed to field a joint women's hockey team although they will compete separately in other sports.
While the two Koreas have agreed to allow their teams to walk together in the Winter Olympics, North Korea will not be able to field a team for the Summer Olympics having recently lost two of their best sprinters who defected across the DMZ back in December.
