Seoul’s mayor calls Games a chance ‘to change the fate of the Korean peninsula’
Seoul is hoping to “change the fate of the Korean peninsula” with the launch of a bid to jointly host the 2032 Olympic Games with North Korea.
Representatives from both Koreas are expected to submit their plans to co-host the event at a meeting of the International Olympic City in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Friday. The South Korean Olympic Committee chose Seoul, a previous Olympic host, over the southern port city of Busan on Monday.
