South Korean President Moon Jae-In has proposed delaying annual joint military exercises with the U.S. in an attempt to ease tensions with the nuclear-armed North during next year's Winter Olympics.South Korea will host the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang from February 9-25 next year, with the Paralympics scheduled to begin on March 9 .But the venue is just 80 kilometers south of the tense border with North Korea, and tensions tend to rise during the drills, which Pyongyang condemns as rehearsals for invasion.Games organizers and Seoul are both keen for the North to take part in what they have proclaimed as a "peace Olympics".Last month the South's Unification Minister Cho Myoung-Gyon warned the North could deliver a "fatal blow" to the Olympics if it launches a missile or stages another provocation before the event.I don't think North Korea will do anything that may undermine the Olympics.
