The discussions centred on preparations for the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. The two leaders agreed that the preparations are going very well, and that the stage is set for very successful Olympic Winter Games 2018.
Speaking for the IOC, President Bach confirmed that, "the test events have been very successful, and I have great confidence in the PyeongChang Organising Committee to deliver successful Olympic Winter Games."
The IOC sent invitations to take part in the Games to National Olympic Committees, including the National Olympic Committee of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), already in February of this year.
Furthermore, the IOC is also supporting a number of athletes from the DPRK to assist them to qualify.
"The Olympic Winter Games can greatly assist in the reconciliation and cooperation between the two Koreas and peace on the Korean peninsula," said President Moon.
President Bach added, "the IOC appreciates very much President Moon’s vision of how the Olympic Games can support dialogue and reconciliation on the Korean peninsula and beyond. We can look forward to excellent Olympic Winter Games from Korea to the world".
The two leaders agreed to cooperate closely with regard to the further preparations including the participation of athletes of the NOC of DPRK, and its modalities.
