Separate parade of South and North Korea for the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Paralympics

The National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) of North and South Korea will march separately at tomorrow's Opening Ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games, it has been announced. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) had offered both countries the chance to march together under the same conditions as last month’s Winter Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in Pyeongchang.

But despite what the IPC describes as a "day of amicable and positive discussions between the two NPCs in the Paralympic Village", the two parties have decided against it. "Although we are disappointed, we respect the decision of the two NPCs who decided that marching separately would be better for both parties," IPC President Andrew Parsons said.
