TIES THAT BIND: NORTH AND SOUTH KOREA TOGETHER FOR SOCCER?
Published January 25, 1996
A spokesperson for South Korea's Football Association yesterday said that North Korea has asked FIFA for "working advice" on a plan to host the 2002 World Cup jointly with South Korea. In a letter faxed to FIFA General Secretary Joseph Blatter, North Korea Football Association General Secretary Ri Chang Soon said the country wanted to host World Cup 2002 and would seek "any other ways and means to this end." Upon hearing North Korea's proposal, South Korea Football Association Secretary Chung Mong Joon said co-hosting the event would made South Korea a stronger candidate than Japan. The 21-member FIFA Exec Committee is scheduled to make a decision June 1 (KYODO NEWS, 1/24).
