President Moon Jae-in on Monday proposed that South Korea should co-host the 2030 FIFA World Cup with North Korea, China, and Japan.

Presidential spokesman Park Soo-hyun said Moon met with visiting FIFA President Gianni Infantino at Cheong Wa Dae and told him, "If neighboring Northeast Asian countries can host the World Cup, I think that would contribute to peace between South and North Korea and in Northeast Asia as a whole".

"I hope we'll have the chance during the 2030 World Cup", Moon added.  

"Northeast Asia… is one of the tensest regions in the world", Moon said. "Soccer exchanges in this region can play a role in stabilizing peace".

Infantino promised to see how Chinese President Xi Jinping will react when he meets him in Beijing on Wednesday.

FIFA will select the host country for the 2026 World Cup tournaments in 2020, so the decision on the 2030 World Cup is at least six or seven years off.
