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.

"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.

During its first formal talks last week with South Korea in more than two years, North Korea agreed to send a delegation, including athletes and cheerleaders, to the February 9-25 games.

The North proposed that the meeting take place Monday at Panmungak, located on the North Korean side of the border village, and said it will send four art officials, including an orchestra conductor, to the talks, the ministry said in a statement.

Jarrod Agen, Pence's deputy chief of staff, said Pence would travel to the Olympics "to reinforce the strong US presence on the Korean Peninsula and send a clear message of American resolve to the North Korean regime".

With the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang less than a month away, South Korea continues to offer olive branches to their northern neighbors.
