"I hope that the Games will help lay the foundation for dialogue and cooperation on the Korean Peninsula which is going through political tension", said Do, adding that North Korea's participation in the Pyeongchang Games is likely to be "a last-minute decision".
Former figure skating champion Kim Yuna, a goodwill ambassador for the PyeongChang Winter Games, addressed the 193-member UN General Assembly that day, sharing her experience "in witnessing the power sport has in breaking down the walls of race, region, language and religion all around the world".
The U.N. General Assembly has approved a resolution by acclamation urging all countries to stop fighting and observe a truce during the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
"The Olympic Charter states the goal of Olympism is to place sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity", she said.
The PyeongChang Olympics are slated to run from February ninth to 25th and the Paralympics from March ninth to 18th of next year.
The title of the draft resolution was "Building a peaceful and better world through sport and the Olympic ideal". The pair's participation in the Games is now up to the North Korean Olympic committee.
Introducing the resolution, Lee Hee-beom, the president and CEO of the PyeongChang Organizing Committee said the truce begins seven days before the opening of the Olympic Games and concludes on the seventh day after the closing of the Paralympic Games. "Indeed PyeongChang represents the most honest efforts to cross borders between south and north and foster a peaceful environment".

"In our fragile world that is drifting apart, the Olympic Games have the power to unite humanity in all its diversity", Bach said. "The Republic of Korea is ready to welcome the world".
The symbolic Olympic Truce resolution has been adopted every two years ahead of the summer and winter games since 1993.
Backed by a Government delegation, including Minister of Culture Do Jong-whan, South Korean officials sought to reassure the United Nations of their commitment to ensuring the safety to the Games.
China and Russian Federation have pushed back against some demands the U.S. and Japan wrote into early drafts of UN Security Council resolutions aimed at halting Pyongyang's efforts to develop nuclear weapons.
Beijing and Moscow eventually voted for new sanctions against North Korea in August and September.
The truce was passed by consensus in the General Assembly, including both North and South Korea.
PyeongChang 2018 President Hee Beom Lee presented the truce before the General Assembly, and South Korean gold medalist Kim Yu Na spoke of the "role of sport and the Olympic ideal in promoting peace".
