With the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang less than a month away, South Korea continues to offer olive branches to their northern neighbors.

South Korea's vice-minister for sport, Roh Tae-kang, said the two sides had discussed an inter-Korean ice hockey team during talks on Tuesday - the first high-level contact between the neighbours for more than two years.

They knocked off a ranked Minnesota team at home in December and are coming off a Tuesday road win against Northwestern. The Spartans bludgeoned the Tar Heels 63-45 in November, and the Buckeyes were 86-72 losers in December.

Chang also told reporters at Beijing's global airport that "the IOC is likely to consider" South Korea's proposal to form a joint women's ice hockey team and the size of North Korea's delegation to be sent to Pyeongchang will be decided by its national Olympic committee.

The Torch-bearing opening ceremony took place on 16 December 2017 in Seoul, capital of South Korea, and countries from across the world were represented at the ceremony. The International Olympic Committee is expected to extend several "wild card" spots to North Korean athletes so they can compete at the Olympics without qualifying, but it's not known if that would apply to individual athletes or an entire team.

South Korea has qualified skaters in ice dance, men's singles and women's singles.

North Korea has yet to respond to the joint-team proposal.
