Pakistan has maintained high-level diplomatic contacts with the Indian establishment, an Indian Express report said on January 3. The Government on Thursday said "though terror and talks cannot go together, talks on terror can definitely go on".

The VR experience is enabled by Intel True VR technology, which uses multiple camera pods at each event to create interactive 360-degree virtual reality environments. "Louder" was written and composed by Taeyang, according to the official Twitter account of the Games, and was performed for the first time during the Olympic Torch Relay Ceremony. Viewers can switch between the cameras, receive "natural sound" captured at each camera location, and see real-time stats, leaderboards and postevent results.

"The Olympics have always been an opportunity to showcase emerging media technology", said Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics, in a statement.
