Korea talks: 'When US is sidelined, local players find peaceful solutions'

Korea talks: 'When US is sidelined, local players find peaceful solutions'

The two Koreas will hold talks next week to discuss the North's plan to send Moranbong to the Pyeongchang games, Seoul's unification ministry said on Saturday. At that meeting they agreed to hold military talks and send a North Korean delegation of officials, athletes, cheerleaders, journalists and others to the Olympics.

In 2017 as a whole, China's overall trade with North Korea declined by more than 10 percent to about $5 billion, as U.S. President Donald Trump secured Beijing's backing for four escalating rounds of sanctions. It is important to reduce the danger of accidental conflict and the escalation of any such incident. Imports from the country also plunged 82 percent in December.

It seems that Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, has put into full gear a strategy of winning over South Korea by playing its "Olympic participation" card.

That they feel safe and that nyone who might be a predator or an abuser knows that mechanism is there and that it's encouraged. I am sick to my stomach about it.


Of course, there were awkward moments that reaffirmed political and ideological differences between the two Koreas.

Trump discussed North Korea in a call Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron of France.

However, he said the time in which the USA and North Korean could still end the crisis diplomatically is fast running out.

The accords were widely viewed as a positive step after a year of escalating tension over North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear and missile programs.

The so-called Vancouver meeting brings together ministers of countries that fought alongside South Korea during the 1950-53 Korean War. His statement was seen as an olive branch after a year of aggression, with Kim overseeing advancements in Pyongyang's nuclear and long-range missile technologies. He also made clear that his country will keep in step with the global community in the sanctions against North Korea. Tensions have eased, but North Korea is calling for more changes that would place Seoul in a hard position. The US State Department has declared anew that the United States will continue applying pressure on Pyongyang toward the goal of its denuclearisation.

The United States has shown consistent support for inter-Korea dialogue and the easing of hostilities.
