"We have never begged for dialogue with the United States and it will be the same going forward", KCNA reported Wednesday night, citing Cho Yong Sam, director-general of the North American department of North Korea's foreign ministry.

North Korea says it is not interested in meeting U.S. Vice President Mike Pence while he is in South Korea for the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Last month, North and South Korea agreed to march under one flag at the Winter Games and had their first high-level talks in about two years.

Their spokespersons have said that protests will continue during the games at the venues where North Korean athletes and artists are set to participate. In 2016, South Korea's former spy chief said Kim Yo Jong was seen "abusing power", punishing propaganda department executives for "minor mistakes". Kim Yo Jong now holds that position.

Kim reportedly told a cheering audience in Kim Il Sung Square: "We... have become capable of showcasing our stature as a world-class military power to the world".

What should have been a celebration of South Korea's titanic cultural, economic, and political achievements is degenerating into an event that will instead normalize the barbarous North Korean regime that wants to destroy the South. While Pence pledged that the US would stop North Korea from threatening his homeland, Kim paraded mobile missile launchers through Pyongyang.

After meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on Wednesday, Pence announced that the U.S. will "soon unveil the toughest and most aggressive round of economic sanctions on North Korea ever".

"But we should encourage more dialogue between north and south if it leads to North Korea abiding by its global obligations to cease its illegal weapons and nuclear programs".

Meanwhile, more than 200 North Korean cheerleaders crossed the military demarcation line into South Korea on Wednesday.

Seoul's Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said North Korea asked the South to supply fuel for the 9,700-ton Mangyongbong-92. The isolated state conducted almost 20 missile tests a year ago.

"We will closely discuss with the United States and other related nations the matter of providing convenience to the Mangyongbong ferry so that no problem regarding sanctions would occur", Baik said.
