We'll take a look at the preparations and the promotional activities of the PyeongChang Winter Games.
The PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games are right around the corner! However, there are issues left to be solved. The biggest issue of them all, is the continued provocations by North Korea. This year alone, North Korea conducted 10 missile launches, and their 6th nuclear test. Back in September, with foreign media outlets focusing on the North's provocations, the French sports minister hinted at the possibility of France withdrawing from the Olympics, if security conditions on the Korean Peninsula remain unstable. In response, the South Korean government is pursuing measures to ensure the safety of those participating in the Olympic Games. The best solution to this concern, seems to be the participation of North Korea at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games,... and this week, we'll be discussing the preparations, promotional activities, and issues surrounding the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which is now 100 days away.
