Trump open to US-NKorea talks 'under right circumstances'

Following the joint proposals presented by the governments of the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), Bach said he "warmly" welcomes "the joint proposals by the governments of the ROK and DPRK, which have been applauded by so many other governments worldwide".

North Korean athletes will attend next month's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, officials said on Tuesday, a small breakthrough after months of rising tensions between the two countries over Pyongyang's nuclear program.

"In the midst of intense international isolation, they see South Korea as representing their greatest chance of escape, so they are willing to forego demands related to the military or Kaesong and focus squarely on smooth cooperation over the Olympics", Cho continued. He warned that the North would face harsher international sanctions and pressure if it resorts to new provocations, adding that "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the path to peace and our goal". The authors claim it could lead to "inadvertent nuclear launches" based on an "unwitting reliance" on false information.

President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae In had a phone call where they discussed recent talks between the two Koreas, but a major discrepancy exists between the US and South Korea's account of the call.

The exact dates of the future talks were to be announced by Seoul later this week.

The cheerleaders made their first appearance at the 2002 Asian Games in Busan, hitting the headlines when nearly 300 of them arrived on a ferry dressed in colourful hanboks - traditional Korean dresses - and waving so-called unification flags, a pale blue silhouette of the whole Korean peninsula.

"Once details are finalized, we should do whatever it takes to make it happen. but I hope that the two Korea will work out details about who will come and by what methods without violating existing sanctions", he added.

South Korea's highest-ranking military officer inspected the preparedness of the country's troops Friday for the security of the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.

The rule will not be enforced within the Olympic venues, where IOC protocol applies, but could be an issue elsewhere.

The leaders of the two Koreas have met only twice for summit talks during their 70 years of division along the world's most heavily fortified border.

"It's still very early in this process, and we have to see how much momentum it acquires, but so far this year is definitely getting off to a very different start", he said. The accord stipulates the two will actively cooperate in the Olympics to "enhance the prestige of the Korean people". An earlier version of this story misstated the name of the city.

A stricken North Korea, if it chose not to retaliate, would also lose enormous international and domestic standing, and set the precedent for the US to repeat the strike any time it feels the country has stepped out of line. "If they want to broker a deal with the Americans, they need to do it now".

In the Journal interview, Trump suggested his combative tweets are part of a broader strategy.

But South Korea's account of the call included a firm denial of a news story that has caused North Korea experts to recoil in horror, namely that Trump is considering a "bloody nose" strike against Kim Jong Un's regime, according to Anna Fitfield, the Washington Post's Tokyo Bureau Chief.
