North Korea has offered to host some of the
2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic games alongside South Korea.
The pro-North Japanese newspaper Choson Sinbo reported Friday that Pyongyang said its Masikryong
ski resort could be used for events… as it′s close to Pyeongchang and the facility
meets global standards. It went on to quote North Korea as calling
it a possible “opportunity from heaven,” that could contribute to inter-Korean reconciliation
and regional peace. The proposal comes after Pyeongchang organizer′s
rejected the IOC′s plans… to split the games up between locations outside of Korea,…
in order to save costs.
