North Korea might co-host 2018 Winter Olympic Games”

South Korea considered sharing some events at the Seoul 1988 Olympics with the North.

North Korea's only member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Chang Ung, said on Friday that he will discuss a plan to form a unified Korean team during the Pyeongchang Olympics with other IOC members.

Choi's suggestion comes after South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who advocates greater engagement with North Korea, suggested the two could launch a joint bid for the 2030 football World Cup.
