North Korea's 'army of beauties' set to invade South

Choi also offered the North Korean performance troupe the use of the recently opened Gangneung Art Center, which has a multi-purpose hall with a capacity of 1,000 seats, and other nearby performance facilities. He has done far more for us than they ever have for any American president.

Later Wednesday, Trump claimed that his administration's pressure campaign had prompted the North Koreans to negotiate with the South, and recounted Moon as telling him that the initial meeting was "extremely good".

"In terms of how big of an impact it (falling trade) had on North Korea, there was definitely impact because some of their products could only go to China while others could only be imported from China", said Chen Fengying, an economics expert at state-backed China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations.

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

The North's website Uriminzokkiri said that dialogue and a "war rehearsal" can not go together, calling the exercises the source of catastrophe for the Korean Peninsula.

Clearly, the talks between the North and South this week, and the North's decision to send a delegation to the Olympics, have transformed the atmospherics around a standoff that had appeared to be moving at a quickening pace towards war.

Japan, South Korea and countries that supplied United Nations troops to the South during the Korean War in the 1950s will take part. The U.S. has also imposed sanctions on the North's flag carrier, Air Koryo, so using Northern air routes would be hard.

"You'll see that a lot with me", Trump said of his belligerent remarks towards the North Korean leader, but added "then all of a sudden somebody's my best friend".

The two North Korean athletes compete in pairs figure skating, where they have skated to a cover version of the Beatles' song "A Day in the Life" and Quebecois singer Ginette Reno's "Je Ne Suis Qu'une Chanson".

The invite to North Korea to participate in the Olympics has already required some diplomatic and internal Olympic Committee (IOC) gymnastics to make the idea reality. According to the Swedish diplomat, Stockholm hails the progress reached in the talks between the two Koreas and thinks that North Korea's participation in the Olympic Games is good news.

"This was meant to say 'don't even think about it.' But all the more reason to have it there now".

"This is a very positive start to the New Year for the global Olympic movement and for long-term peace on the Korean peninsula", said the President of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah of this week's talks. And Pyongyang may hope South Korea could resume desperately needed economic aid at some point.

Participation in the Olympics would help ease the North's isolation.

"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".
