SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean organizers say the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang will help promote peace on the divided Korean peninsula.

Kim Jin-sun, head of the local organizing committee, spoke Friday as tensions in Korea escalated to the highest levels in recent years.

North Korea threatened to attack the U. S. and South Korea in protest of military drills and international sanctions against its nuclear test.

Pyeongchang is located in Gangwon province, the only Korean province divided by the heavily fortified inter-Korean border.

Kim says the Olympics will be a "symbol of peace" and facilitate dialogue between the two Koreas.

He spoke at a ceremony to launch the new logo for the games, a five-colored square representing where the earth meets the sky. The design has its roots in the Korean alphabet.
