With the safety and the security of the athletes at the top of its priorities, the IOC indicates that nothing at this time leads to believe that the organizing conditions of the Winter Olympic Games do not comply with these imperatives.
The planned operations are on schedule, particularly the lighting of the Olympic Flame in Olympia on October 24th, to which the French IOC members and the CNOSF President have been invited, as a symbol of the awarding of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to Paris and to France.
The IOC is in constant contact with the heads of State most concerned by the situation in the Korean peninsula. It goes without saying that it will take the most appropriate measures for the Games to take place in optimal conditions and for athletes to be able to perform at their best.
