China and Japan:
 
Pyongyang announced that its male ice hockey team will not compete at the fifth Winter Asian Games to be held in the coming February in Aomori, Japan. However, seventy-two North Korean athletes will still participate in the disciplines of alpine and cross-country skiing, speed, short track, and figure skating, as well as women’s ice hockey. This will mark North Korea’s reappearance at the Winter Asian Games, after having missed the last two in 1996 and 1999.
