South Korea's new liberal president has offered to co-host the 2030 World Cup with rival North Korea and other Northeast Asian countries as part of efforts to promote peace in the region, his office said Monday.
Moon Jae-in made the offer during a Monday meeting with Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino, saying such an event would contribute to establishing peace among the two Koreas and in Northeast Asia.
Moon Jae-in made the proposal during a meeting with FIFA President Gianni Infantino at the presidential Blue House in Seoul, Moon's office said in a statement. "I would like President Infantino to have interests on this matter".

Infantino has been visiting South Korea since last week for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup final between England and Venezuela that was held on Sunday.
