DPR Korea and South Korea marched together under a unified Korean flag in the athletes parade at the opening ceremony of the Games last Friday. DPR Korea and South Korea also formed a women's ice hockey team to compete at PyeongChang.
In the speech during the opening ceremony, Bach stressed the Games can send "a powerful message of peace to the world".
"United in our diversity, we are stronger than all the forces that want to divide us," Bach said in his speech at the opening ceremony.
The Games in South Korea are due to end on Feb. 25.
