South Korea plans to propose a joint hosting of the 2032 Summer Olympics with North Korea at next week's summit in Pyongyang, sports minister Do Jong-hwan said Wednesday, according to a Yonhap report.

Do will make the proposal when he accompanies President Moon Jae-in to the North Korean capital for a third summit with Kim Jong Un from Tuesday, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said.

"I plan to make this proposal to the North for the settlement of peace" on the Korean peninsula, he was quoted as telling journalists in Tokyo.

N. Korea recommits to denuclearization of Korean peninsula

  N. Korea recommits to denuclearization of Korean peninsula A high-level South Korean delegation met with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang on Wednesday, as Seoul plans a new summit with the North Korean leader to break a deadlock in denuclearisation talks."The north and the south should further their efforts to realise the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula," KCNA cited Kim as saying.

"Seoul and Pyongyang would co-host the games", he said.

The two Koreas discussed the co-hosting of the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics but negotiations fell apart over differences on how to share the events.

North and South Korea formed their first-ever unified Olympic team -- a joint women's ice hockey squad -- for February's winter games in the South Korean resort of Pyeongchang, leading to a diplomatic thaw.

Olympics chief Thomas Bach said this month he was open to talks with the two Koreas about marching and competing together at the 2020 Tokyo Games.

Bach was speaking at the Asian Games in Indonesia, where the two Koreas paraded together at the opening ceremony and formed unified teams for the second time this year.

The two Koreas formed joint teams in rowing, canoeing and women's basketball at the regional Olympics, winning one gold, one silver and two bronze medals.

For the 2030 FIFA World Cup, Do said South Korea also plans to propose a co-hosted tournament involving China, Japan and the two Koreas.

"In this way, we could maintain the current momentum for peace and expand peace on the Korean peninsula to the whole region", he said.
