PARK CITY, Utah Describing a US pursuit of the 2026 Winter Olympics with Los Angeles already hosting the 2028 Summer Games as complicated, Los Angeles 2028 chairman Casey Wasserman said Tuesday the local organizing committee would need a series of in-depth discussions before signing off on a 2026 American bid.

The multi-billion dollar Pyeongchang Olympics will be held just 50 miles from the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, the world's most heavily armed border.

"I can not really see it (a situation of not going)", Swedish Olympic council CEO Peter Reinebo told news agency TT.

North Korea asserts its right to shoot down U.S. bombers
Ri noted that the statement from Trump was "clearly a declaration of war" even if it came from the USA president. He ended his brief remarks by saying: "The question of who won't be around much longer will be answered then".

North and South Korea remain technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended with a truce and not a peace treaty. "We are completely focused on going".
