North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced on Wednesday that the countries planned to jointly bid for the 2032 Summer Olympics. The announcement was made by Moon during a summit between the two leaders in Pyongyang, but there were no details of which cities might host certain events at the games, or how advanced the plans were. The International Olympic Committee traditionally does not announce host cities until seven years ahead of the games, giving the Koreas until 2025 to put together a joint bid.
