(Xinhua)    09:06, February 12, 2019

South Korea has selected Seoul as the candidate city for a joint bid with DPRK for the 2032 Olympic Games, said the Yonhap News Agency on Monday.

According to the report, the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (KSOC) said the capital city was chosen over Busan after earning 34 out of 49 votes at its general assembly in Jincheon, North Chungcheong Province.

Seoul hosted the 1988 Olympic Games.

South Korea plans for the joint bid for the 2032 Olympics with DPRK as the two sides made the agreement during their sports talks last year.

A letter of intent is scheduled to be submitted to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Friday when sports officials from the two sides and the IOC meet in Lausanne, Switzerland.

DPRK has yet to announce its candidate city.
