White House: US 'looks forward to participating' in Olympics in South Korea

"I think it depends on what's going on at the time in the country", Haley said. "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", Haley said in the interview. And certainly, that's a ideal opportunity for all of them to go and do something they've worked so hard for.

The announcement came shortly after she suggested in a press briefing that the America may not compete in Pyeongchang amid escalating tensions between the US and North Korea.

On 29 November, North Korea said it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the whole of continental United States.

This truce stipulates that any existing conflicts must cease for the duration of the games, and requests that all United Nations member states "ensure the safe passage, access and participation of athletes, officials and all other accredited persons taking part in the Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games".

Sanders indicated that "no official decision" has been made on whether the United States will participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. The situation with neighboring North Korea, which has grown increasingly hostile while pursuing its nuclear ambitions, is "changing by the day", Haley told Fox News on Wednesday, making the security of USA athletes uncertain.

When asked by Fox News Wednesday night if it was a "done deal" for American athletes to participate in South Korea, Haley replied: "I have not heard anything about that ..."

The International Olympic Committee announced the ban after a 17-month investigation into state-sponsored doping in Russian Federation. "We remain closely engaged with the South Koreans and other partner nations to secure the venues as we do every Olympics".

"There is full support from the United Nations, very positive message coming out of the assembly", Dubi said.

"What have we always said?"

Even as the U.S. Olympic Committee insisted there have been no discussions about skipping the Winter Olympics, twice in less than 24 hours top Trump administration officials cast uncertainty on the prospects of sending U.S. athletes to South Korea, before quickly softening their stance. "We will make sure that the athletes and the staff are safe when we're in Korea".
