North Korea has proposed that the two Koreas march together at the opening and closing ceremonies of the upcoming Winter Asian Games in China, an official said Wednesday. The North made the proposal last Friday and the South plans to accept it, said Paek Sung-il, an official of the Korean Olympic Committee. Paek said the South will provide uniforms for the North's delegation for the joint march at the Jan. 28-Feb. 4 event in the Chinese city of Changchun. The two sides have marched together at major sports events eight times starting at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and most recently at the Asian Games last year. They have held talks on forming a unified team for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but little progress was made. The Koreas remain technically at war since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a cease-fire, not a peace treaty, but their ties have warmed significantly following the 2000 summit between the two countries' leaders.
