  • IOC to meet with delegations from South Korea and North Korea on Feb. 15


    One year after the successful Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will organise a working meeting to discuss further sports cooperation between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

    During this tripartite meeting, the IOC and the two Korean delegations, composed of representatives of their respective National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and governments led by the two NOC Presidents and the two Sports Ministers, will discuss potential joint activities for both NOCs in the run-up to and during the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

    The meeting will take place at the IOC Headquarters on 15 February 2019, from 9.30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    As this is a working meeting, no media opportunities are planned.

    A statement will be released shortly after the meeting on


    The International Olympic Committee is a not-for-profit independent international organisation made up of volunteers, which is committed to building a better world through sport. It redistributes more than 90 per cent of its income to the wider sporting movement, which means that every day the equivalent of 3.4 million US dollars goes to help athletes and sports organisations at all levels around the world.
