IOC, Koreas meet to finalise Olympic deal

Lausanne (France): After the two Koreas struck a deal for the North to attend the Winter Games in the South, Olympic bosses were meeting on Saturday to resolve the devils in the details of the landmark pact.
With less than three weeks to go before the Games in Pyeongchang begin, the most momentous decisions have already been made.
North and South Korea will march together at the opening ceremony under a unification flag and field a united women's hockey team, while the North has said it will send a 550- member delegation
to the Games. North Korea has taken part in seven of the last 12 Winter Olympics, most recently in Vancouver 2010. But
its presence in Pyeongchang is a significant diplomatic coup.
