North Korean leader wants to continue reconciliation

North Korean leader wants to continue reconciliation

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been briefed by the high-level delegation dispatched to South Korea for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

"The point is, no pressure comes off until they are actually doing something that the alliance believes represents a meaningful step toward denuclearization", Pence said on the flight, according to Bloomberg, citing a Washington Post report.

Instead of explicitly agreeing to North Korea's invitation to Pyongyang, Moon responded by suggesting the two countries "accomplish this by creating the right conditions", and encouraged the North to "actively pursue" talks with the US.

People close to the Trump administration have openly talked about giving North Korea a "bloody nose".

Vice President Mike Pence has signaled that he is open to holding talks with North Korea, a sign that icy tensions in the Korean peninsula are beginning to warm up, CBS News' Jackie Alemany has confirmed.

The cheerful and poised appearance of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, at the Winter Olympis sparked comparisons to President Trump's daughter and advisor, Ivanka Trump.

The comments came after the North's official delegation, led by Mr Kim's sister Kim Yo-jong, returned home from their landmark visit to Pyeongchang.


During the Olympics' opening ceremony, the US Vice President and his wife were spotted in an adjacent sitting position with Kim Yo Jong who is the blood sister to the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

But at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council in December, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, warned: "If war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed".

North Korean despot Kim Jong Un continued making waves at the Winter Olympics - this time sending a group of cheerleaders from the hermit kingdom into a tizzy - even though they realized he was a fake.

So Moon agreed with U.S. vice president Mike Pence on the "maximum sanctions and pressure" approach.

The North is as adamant that it will not give up its nuclear programme as the USA is that talks can not take place unless the weapons are scrapped. Their visit to the South was the first by such a senior delegation since the Korean War in the 1950s.

The US wants to strengthen sanctions and military pressure toward North Korea. And we are ready to have the first meeting without preconditions.

"It was out of our control, but I have to say we're really enjoying working with the North Korean players", said Murray, per USA Today.
