Two Koreas march together at Winter Olympics

From AFP via Yahoo! News:

Athletes from Cold War foes South and North Korea marched together in a show of unity at the opening ceremony of the 20th Winter Olympics here.

South Korea speed skater Bora Lee joined with Democratic People's Republic of Korea's figure skater Han Jong-In as they entered the Stadio Olimpico for the ceremony.

The joint march was the first of its kind at a Winter Olympics.

In a symbolic display of unity reflecting recent years of rapprochment, athletes from the two Koreas marched together in the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 and in Athens in 2004.


I think this is a specimen of this so-called "positive news" that I've heard about, I really don't have much to say about it, just that its cool to hear something positive about Korea.
