COULD SOUTH KOREA AND JAPAN CO-HOST WORLD CUP 2002?

     Bae Jae Shik, the head of the South Korea delegation for the
South Korea-Japan forum, said he will suggest to the South Korean
government that South Korea and Japan co-host the 2002 soccer
World Cup.  Bae said he would make the proposal only if the
Japanese delegation to the forum agrees with the idea.  The Forum
brings leading intellectuals from the two countries to promote
"mutual understanding between the two nations."  FIFA has moved
up the selection date from June '96 to early next year -- "a
moved viewed as trying to curb the already fierce bidding race
between Japan and Korea" (KYODO NEWS SERVICE, 8/31).
