No hint of threat to 2018 Olympics: Bach

Posted September 14, 2017

Earlier this month North Korea launched its biggest nuclear bomb test, prompting global condemnation as US President Donald Trump said "appeasement" would not work.

"There is not even a hint that there is a threat for the security of the games in the context of the tensions between North Korea and some other countrNo ies", Bach told a press conference.

Bach summed up his message by proclaiming "the Olympic Games are an anchor of stability", in these troubled times.

He said that the wording of an Olympic truce to be put before the United Nations in November - a common tradition ahead of each Olympics - was now being discussed.

"Credibility is one of the three pillars of Olympic Agenda 2020", and "a new good governance system of the IOC has been introduced" as part of the reform programme", said the declaration on Monday, reports Xinhua news agency.

"We are also keeping the door open for the athletes of the DPRK", Bach said. "I am confident that Pyeongchang will be the safest place during the Games", had said Friday, Gian Franco Kasper, a member of the executive Committee of the IOC.

The statement said Francis "expressed his concern for the worsening of the humanitarian crisis". Flying from Colombia back to Rome late September 10, Pope Francis was asked about U.S.

"I don't see this right now because there is a clear committment", Bach said.

"It would undermine the efforts of those who are working towards a diplomatic solution so that peace will prevail on the Korean Peninsula".

Johnson's last outing at the Olympics came in Sydney in 2000, where he successfully defended his 400m title, but the 50-year-old will have no feelings of envy towards any competitors when the Games return to USA soil in 2028.

The IOC Executive Board reaffirmed that "it goes without saying that infringements from the past will also be addressed" and the IOC has already taken action against those responsible for hurting the credibility of the Olympic Games.

"The olympic torch will be lit in Greece on October 24 and will arrive in Korea on the 1st of November", added the manager, saying that " the olympics will be held in flawless security ".
