S. Korea proposes to hold talks with DPRK on unified team in 2008 Olympics


[ 2006-11-28 11:01 ]

韩国统一部近日表示,韩国政府同意与朝鲜就多哈亚运会开幕式上共同入场问题举行会谈。这是朝鲜奥委会10日提议朝韩双方在多哈举行体育官员会谈后,韩国政府首次就此表态。此外,双方还将就2008年在北京举行的奥运会上组建联合代表团交换意见。

在2000年悉尼奥运会开幕式上,韩朝体育代表团曾首次携手共同入场,开启了韩朝体育代表团在大型国际运动会开、闭幕式中共同入场的先例。

South Korea and the DPRK have held joint parade in opening and closing ceremonies of international sports events for seven times since the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympic Games.

South Korea proposed to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Monday to hold meeting this week on forming a unified team for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the South Korean Unification Ministry and the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) said.

KOC President Kim Jung-kil sent a telephone message to his DPRK counterpart Mun Jae-duk earlier in the day, which said South Korea agreed to hold talks on forming a unified Olympic team, the South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported.

Kim's remarks came after Pyongyang's request on Nov. 10 to hold talks in Qatar ahead of the 15th Asian Games, set for Dec. 1-15, to discuss fielding a joint delegation at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Asian Games.

The first meeting between the two sides will be held on Thursday in Doha, Yonhap said, quoting an unnamed Unification Ministry official.

South Korea and the DPRK have held joint parade in opening and closing ceremonies of international sports events for seven times since the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympic Games.

The two sides had reached an agreement in Macao last November during the East Asian Games to form a unified team in the Doha Asian Games and the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
