North Korea Intends To Send A Big Delegation To The Winter Olympics

A person familiar with the matter said, "North Korean figure-skating duo Ryom Tae-okay and Kim Ju-sik competent for the Olympics in September, on the other hand the country's Olympic Committee unsuccessful to register them by the October deadline". "I'm not messing around - not even a little bit, not even 1 percent", Trump said.

An ice sculpture of the Olympic rings is seen during the Pyeongchang Winter Festival, near the venue for the opening and closing ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, February 10, 2017.

"The two Koreas can not remove mutual distrust and confrontation, and move toward unification, under persistent military tensions", the paper said. The North could raise this issue at upcoming talks, along with its demand for Washington's suspension of regular deployment of its strategic assets around the peninsula.

He also said he would "absolutely" be willing to talk on the phone to Mr Kim.

Mr Trump said he would like to see talks go beyond the Olympics, and added that the United States would "get involved" at the appropriate time.

With their good looks and sharp moves, North Korea's female cheerleaders are a marked contrast to the regime's menacing nuclear ambitions.

Moon's New Year's address was both populist and pacifist; the president emphasized improving the quality of life for the average citizen and reaffirmed his dedication to peace on the peninsula and the dismantling of the North's nuclear program.

Ri Son-gwon, chair of North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, reads a joint press statement during the inter-Korean talks held at the Peace House in Panmunjeom on January 9.

The talks had been closely watched by world leaders keen for any sign of a reduction in tension, as fears grow over the North's missile launches and development of nuclear weapons, in defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

South Korean reports have suggested the North could send a high-level delegation to the Games including Kim's younger sister Yo-Jong, who is a senior member of the ruling Workers' Party.

"He [Kim] knows I'm not messing around".

And South Korea, you should be pleased that we're giving you the gift of our participation in the Winter Olympics.

Marcotte, who also coaches a team from South Korea, first spoke with Ryom and Kim early past year at the Asian Winter Games in Japan, congratulating them on their performance and improvement.

South Korea wants to discuss the resumption of family reunions but Pyongyang snubbed previous offers, saying it will not consider further reunions unless several of its citizens are returned by the South.

"The two leaders underscored the importance of continuing the maximum pressure campaign against North Korea". And Trump still seems committed to unpredictability, meaning that the Olympics may represent a pause rather than fundamental easing of the crisis.

"If something can happen and something comes out of those talks, that would be a great thing for all of humanity, that would be a great thing for the world".
