    The two Koreas will meet with the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, Switzerland in February to discuss a proposal for a joint bid for the 2032 Summer Olympics.

    After talks at the joint liaison office in the North Korean border city of Kaesong last week, the two sides agreed to submit a letter of intent to the IOC to co-host the Olympics.

    Australia, China, India and Indonesia are also looking to host the Olympics, with the IOC's final decision likely being made at the IOC session in 2025.

    The two Koreas also hope to field a joint team at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and the following Paralympics and will keep discussing further details.
