The South wanted a flag without the islands, but the North Korean delegation argued Thursday that it "does not accept the fact that Dokdo can not be marked due to political issues held in Korea", leading the International Paralympics Committee to decide that the two Koreas will march in individually.

The atmosphere of peace created around these Olympic Games could have its climax in the summit of presidents of the two countries, scheduled for April, when they are expected to discuss the denuclearization of the peninsula and reunification.
The PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games take place from March 9-18.
Britain's 17-strong team is the country's biggest at a Winter Paralympics since Turin 2006, when 20 athletes took part, including a Para-ice hockey team.
The IPC then decided that it did not want any further debate on the issue and recommended the two Koreas march in separately at the PyeongChang Paralympics opening ceremony, according to the KPC.
"The fact that the NPC will make its Winter Games debut here in South Korea, I also believe, is hugely significant".
All eyes will likely be on the North Korean athletes who arrived on Wednesday as part of a 24-member delegation. Six athletes have travelled to Pyeongchang, but only two will actually compete, both in Nordic skiing events.
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) did not allow the flag with Dokdo, saying it would violate the prohibition of political expression. "It brings people together", added Parsons. Lee Myung-ho, the president South Korea's Paralympic Committee, said. There was gold for Kelly Gallagher and guide Charlotte Evans in the super G, a wheelchair curling bronze, plus four skiing medals in the visually impaired category for Jade Etherington, who retired after the Games, and her guide Caroline Powell.
But the talks broke down in 2008 after failing to agree on how to verify the North's commitments, and in 2009 North Korea conducted its second nuclear weapons test. "And if there is anything that you remember, it is that Korea can host a great competition and that we have a unique culture that you want to tell your friends and colleagues about in your home country". "I believe we will see another equally successful Paralympics", said Cho In-ae, a Seoul resident.
