It was the most dramatic gesture of reconciliation between them in a decade.
It's also an "opportunity for the worldwide community to demonstrate solidarity in opposition to the North Korean nuclear tests and missile launches", Mr Peters said.
The two sides will form a joint North and South Korean Women's Ice Hockey Team.
South Korea and North Korea have marched together under the Unification Flag before. Mr. Kim has called Mr. Trump a lunatic. "I am aware that some people argue that because North Korea is engaging in inter-Korean dialogue, we should reward them by lifting up sanctions or by providing some sort of assistance", said Kono, adding: "I believe that North Korea wants to buy some time to continue their nuclear and missile programmes", Kono said at the meeting. "Investing in nuclear weapons will lead only to more sanctions and to perpetual instability on the peninsula".
He would not say whether the United States has been considering a limited, pre-emptive attack to show the North that the United States means business. The president of the General Assembly, Miroslav Lajcak of Slovakia, said on Twitter: "Heartened by reports that Koreans from DPRK & RoK will march together in @Olympics opening ceremony".
When asked if he had engaged in any communications with Kim Jong-un, Trump declined to comment. South Korean families separated during the Korean war often visit the DMZ to offer prayers for their relatives in the North, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year. The plan is for the North's athletes to enter the South over a land border on February 1.
Others complained "the Pyeongchang Olympics have already become the Pyongyang Olympics". "It proposed to send its Olympic Committee, athletes, cheerleading squad, teakwondo demonstrators, and press corps through the land route in the western region".
The two Koreas have previously sent joint teams to major worldwide sports events twice, both in 1991.
He said it was possible North Korea's presence "may be their early effort to break the ice".
South Korea's Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told a regular briefing Wednesday that the government will try to make sure the joint team's formation doesn't cause any negative effects on South Korean players. During the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, South Korea agreed to pay for North Korean uniforms and bowed to other requests from the neighboring nation. The two Koreas last marched together in the Asian Winter Games of 2007.
Still, that plan, proposed by politicians, has met pushback on behalf of athletes from the No. 22-ranked South Korea team's Canadian coach, and its first Olympic opponent, Switzerland.
A deal to combine North and South Korean women's hockey players on one team was reached Wednesday, pending approval from International Olympic Committee.
