ROGGE AGAINST MOVE: REUTERS' Kim & Lee reported IOC President Jacques Rogge "has previously expressed opposition to co-hosting events with North Korea," saying in '11 that the IOC "would consider allowing the two Koreas to march together at the 2018 opening ceremony but not to share events." Rogge: "As far as spreading venues between the two countries, that is something we do not consider under the current Olympic Charter." Chang told U.S. funded broadcaster Voice of America that "the Masik resort could possibly hold 2018 events if an agreement could be reached." Chang: "When construction is complete, it (Masik) can be used in an international event and possibly in the Olympic Games." Chang acknowledged, however, that "it was not a simple decision to make and that there would have to be complex discussions among several bodies such as the IOC and International Ski Federation to assess the possibility" (REUTERS, 9/4).
