Korean Olympic Bid

The South Korean city of Busan will bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, and will invite the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) capital Pyongyang to join the bid as co-host.

That at least is the wish of the mayor of Busan, Hur Nam-Sik.

He is quoted as saying:

"I would like to unveil the city's ambition here. It is to win the bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics. In principle I am agreed on co-hosting the 2020 Olympics (and) as mayor of Busan I fully intend to have co-hosting".

He added that is would be a "dream" if Pyongyang and Busan could host the event together.
