Berlin (dpa) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Friday approved the merger of South Korea‘s Olympic committee and the country‘s sport council.

Delegations from both South Korean organizations and the Korean government met IOC officials in Lausanne, Switzerland to approve the merger which is to be completed by March 27.

The fusion will bring together the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) and the Korea Council of Sport for All (KOCOSA).

Officials from the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) also attended the meeting.

"During the meeting, which was very positive and productive, all parties came to the conclusion that the merger of the KOC and KOCOSA will have a very positive impact, and that is a major and historic step for the development of the Olympic Movement and sport in general in Korea," an IOC statement said.

"The parties also agreed that the merger will be undertaken in accordance with the rules of the Olympic Charter."

The agreement follows previous concerns that a merger could threaten the independence of the Olympic committee.

South Korea is hosting the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang.
