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