"We believe Pyeongchang will be a good host and make the 2018 Winter Olympics a complete success," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei at a press briefing.

International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge announced Pyeongchang as the winner on Wednesday afternoon -- defeating Munich, Germany and Annecy, France. Pyeongchang had twice previously launched unsuccessful bids for the Winter Games.
