Do Jong-hwan, South Korean minister of culture, sports and tourism, said he would "push ahead for discussions with the International Olympic Committee and other relevant entities" in the hopes of hosting an "Olympics for peace". This suggestion comes off the back of South Korean President Moon Jae-in suggesting the counties could submit a joint bid for the 2030 World Cup.

He said he would discuss co-hosting at the Masikryong ski resort with Jang Woong, North Korea's delegate to the IOC.

Choi said his proposal - which includes cooperation on public performances and ice hockey - would only work if the International Olympic Committee agreed to allow North Korea a "wild card" entry into the games, for which it has not qualified.

The games are scheduled to be held in February, 2018 in PyeongChang.

The United States will send around 245 athletes to compete.

"Sharing some Pyeongchang Olympics events with the North is simply out of question", he added.

South Korea considered sharing some events at the Seoul 1988 Olympics with the North.

Tension has been high for months over North Korea's nuclear and missile development, and due to fears it will conduct a sixth nuclear test and more ballistic missile launches in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

Respondents also chose their most anticipated South Korean athlete of the Winter Games, with two-time Olympic long-track speed skating 500m champion Lee Sang-Hwa receiving the most votes of 79.

One idea was for North Korea to host some skiing competitions at the Games.

The news comes amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, following the North Korean regime's missile tests, as well as the death of Otto Warmbier, a USA student who suffered severe neurological trauma while serving part of a 15-year sentence for stealing a political banner. In May, International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) President Rene Fasel said that the final decision could be made during the NHL Draft that would take place in Chicago on June 23-24.
