South Korea considered sharing some events at the Seoul 1988 Olympics with the North.

Do hopes to discuss the possibility of co-hosting with Chang Ung, the North's representative on the International Olympic Committee, and IOC President Thomas Bach when the officials attend an international taekwondo tournament in the South in late June.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects the construction site of Ryomyong Street, in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Earlier this month, Moon suggested that the two countries apply to co-host the 2030 World Cup.

He was speaking after South Korea's sports minister was quoted as saying some skiing events for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics could be held in North Korea, although officials insist he was misunderstood. He also stated he believed that North Korea's Masikryong Ski Resort has the potential to be a fantastic Olympic venue.

George informs Pacers he will leave in 2018
Fielding a phone call from Pritchard and toying with the idea is vastly different than going to work on a serious deal. The Pacers would be better off trying to add some of the Los Angeles Lakers young players and draft picks.

Jong-hwan is also supposedly mulling over the idea of forming a singular inter-Korean women's ice hockey team for the 2018 Games. The country may ask for a little help, too: from North Korea.

Chang made the remark as he arrived in the Gimpo International Airport on Friday along with other members of the North Korean delegation to the World Taekwondo Championships to open in Muju in North Jeolla Province on Saturday.

But the suggestion will probably be panned by the United States, which has taken a very critical stance against North Korea in recent weeks. The matter concerning the National Hockey League players' participation in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games is closed, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told TASS.

The news comes amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, following the North Korean regime's missile tests, as well as the death of Otto Warmbier, a USA student who suffered severe neurological trauma while serving part of a 15-year sentence for stealing a political banner. He returned to the U.S.in a coma and died days later.
