North and South Korea said Wednesday that athletes from the two countries will march together under a single “unified flag” at the opening of next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The two countries also said women’s ice hockey players would compete together on a single Korean team. The thaw in relations came as President Donald Trump blamed Russia for helping North Korea skirt international sanctions, telling Reuters in a wide-ranging interview that he was ordering more defensive and offensive missiles to be deployed to the region.
