Bach on Koreas: ‘Now it’s for politics to take over’

President Thomas Bach believes the IOC has done its part in getting North Korea and South Korea together at the Pyeongchang Olympics. “Now it’s for politics to take over,” Bach said during a visit to The Associated Press office at the Olympics. Bach said he’s hopeful the detente will continue after the “Olympic flame has been extinguished” at the closing ceremony on Feb. 25 in the frigid mountains of South Korea.
