N. Korea Continues Hacking Attempts on Domestic Cryptocurrency Platforms KCNA: N. Korean Delegation Not to Meet US Counterparts at PyeongChang

They "ran around like headless chickens, barking that "the ship of reds came, "go back to your country" and 'boost the south Korea-US alliance", Pyongyang's state KCNA news agency said Wednesday.

Vice President Mike Pence said on Thursday the United States was "ready for any eventuality" with regard to North Korea and warned that "all options were on the table" to deal with Pyongyang's threats.

In Japan, Pence says he will meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to show "solidarity", in the face of the North Korean threat and with USA service members who would be among the first to respond to a crisis.

Pence departs Monday for Asia to lead the US delegation to the Winter Olympics.

Kim Jong-un might also have seen that U.S. President Donald Trump was sending his daughter, Ivanka, to ceremony and chose to match the move by sending his sister, said Hong Min, an analyst at Seoul's Korea Institute for National Unification.

The South Koreans were accompanied by a 32-member North Korean delegation, including 10 athletes invited to participate for the Olympics, on their return flight the next day.

Koh Yu-hwan, a expert at Seoul's Dongguk University, said, as Kim Jong-un's relative and apparently one of the few people who has earned his absolute trust, carries more weight as a dialogue partner for the South than any other official the North could send.

North Korean hackers have used a variety of tactics to steal cryptocurrency from individuals and companies, alike.

Choe is identified on the United Nations sanctions blacklist as "First Vice Director of the Workers' Party of Korea Propaganda and Agitation Department, which controls all DPRK media and is used by the government to control the public".

Trump and other senior officials have repeatedly said that time is running out before North Korea gains the capability to strike the U.S. mainland with a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile.

North Korea test-fired ballistic missiles over Japan a year ago, as well as a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile that climbed to an altitude of more than 4,000 km (2,485 miles) before splashing into the sea within Japan's exclusive economic zone. His mission is to counter North Korea's propaganda efforts at the Olympics by reminding the world that North Korea is a murderous country, not a normal state.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said Wednesday that the government is reviewing whether to meet North Korea's request to provide fuel to the ferry.

The U.N. committee monitoring sanctions against North Korea has proposed granting an exemption for Choe, who has been on the U.N. sanctions blacklist since June a year ago. Pence said he wants to ensure the Olympics don't distract from North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

The NIS said, "North Korea keeps launching hacking attacks on security-related agents, defense businesses and officials related to North Korean groups".
