Bishkek, Jan.10, 2017 /Kabar/. North Korea agreed to send athletes to the Winter Olympics in South Korea next month, a symbolic breakthrough after months of escalating tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs, wrote The New York Times newspaper.
The announcement was welcomed in the South, but few believe that the sudden charm offensive was motivated by Olympic spirit.
The North not only shunned the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul but also tried to disrupt the Games after talks to co-host the event failed.
