Both have agreed to set up a hotline between their leaders to allow close consultations and a reduction of military tension. The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, for example, experienced peak temperatures of 61 degrees Fahrenheit, inducing poor snow conditions that led to various delays and injuries throughout the weeks of competition. The talks were believed to be "open-hearted".

The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games kicked off on Friday with an opening ceremony emphasising passion and coexistence.

Yun Mi-hyun, who was clutching the reunification flag that shows an undivided Korean peninsula, said that the easing of tensions with the North "warms my heart".

The IPC offered the two nations' paralympic committees a similar arrangement to their Olympic counterparts, but they couldn't see eye-to-eye over the depiction of Korea on the unification flag. President Donald Trump carries mixed feelings about the forthcoming summit, hope and scepticism. The spectacle was refreshing after witnessing icons becoming frustrated for falling short or perfectionistic athletes act displeased with their performance, despite winning gold. Conversely, defeating Team Canada was probably extra sweet for the Americans, who took home their first Olympic title in women's hockey since Nagano 1998.
