North Korea not willing to meet USA officials at Olympics

Shannon Reynolds | 09 February, 2018, 05:11

Just two days before the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Game, the U.S. Vice President vowed tough new sanctions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said North Korea told it on Wednesday that Kim Yo Jong would be part of the delegation led by the country's nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will also be attending this Friday's PyeongChang 2018 opening ceremony along with North Korea's delegates.

"To be clear, we have no intention of meeting with the USA during our visit to South Korea", the report said.

But it's unclear whether giving these $1,000 phones to athletes from North Korea would violate United Nations sanctions rules, reports CBS News.

"I think the goal at home might be that the President is also the commander-in-chief so it looks like a parade to his greater glory".

He once again stressed the US position that "all options are on the table" when it comes to the North, saying that Washington would continue to deploy its "most advanced military assets to Japan and the wider region".

North Korea hosts military parade on eve of South's Olympics
With the 2018 Winter Olympics due to begin in South Korea , all eyes are on the North Korean delegation to the games. The DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement came following comments by a U.S.

He said: 'In terms of pressures on the system I think it probably is the worst ever because we've got very high levels of demand'. Similar performance is being recorded in Scotland, while Wales and Northern Ireland are doing even worse.

Vice President Pence, who will lead the U.S.'s delegation to the winter games, earlier this week did not rule out the possibility of dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington at the competition. The spokesman says Moon will hold a luncheon with the North Korean delegates Saturday but didn't provide an exact time and location.

The South Korean presidential office on Wednesday said it is "significant" that Kim Yo Jong was included in the delegation.

Last month, North Korea arbitrarily moved the anniversary of the establishment of the Korean People's Army to February 8.

At the end of his weekly general audience at the Vatican Feb. 7, the pope offered his prayers and greetings to all those gathered for the XXIII Winter Olympic Games Feb. 9-25 in Pyeongchang, South Korea. "But we'll see what happens".

It can also be expected that an upgraded Pukykson-3 SLBM will be shown, which we previously only saw on the drawings, something similar to an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a solid-propellant engine, or completely new Hwasong-13 systems.

Last year's extended period of nuclear weapons testing by the Kim Jong Un regime provoked condemnation by Seoul and its allies including the U.S. and Australia.

North Korea observers consider the younger Kim the closest relative to Kim Jong-un, known to have disappeared and executed relatives who he has found inconvenient in the past, and potentially the political confidante the dictator trusts the most.
