    The International Olympic Committee says it would cover all expenses for North Korean athletes who want to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, Radio Free Asia reported Saturday.

    The IOC would use money from the Olympic Solidarity program, a scholarship created to support hard-up athletes.

    In September, North Korean figure skating tandem Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik qualified for the Pyeongchang Olympics, but the question now is whether the North will send them.
