N Korea not interested in talking with United States on sidelines of Olympics

  • 'Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un' kicked out of Winter Olympics opening ceremony as they meet amid nuclear tensions

"We. have become capable of showcasing our stature as a world-class military power to the world", said Mr Kim Jong Un.

Since her return to North Korea, she is said to have been prepared for a leadership role by her aunt, Kim Kyong Hui.

Before leaving Japan for South Korea, Pence said the United States would not be duped by any false overture.

7 of 9 North Korea held the parade a day before South Korea hosts the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

The participation of North Korea in the Olympics was up in the air, but three rounds of talks also led to the entrance of 22 athletes from North Korea. Aides say the vice president is advancing a counter message, using the games as an opportunity for the South and the broader worldwide community to exert what President Donald Trump has termed "maximum pressure" against the North.

The arrival of the Mangyongbong 92 cruise ship was met by hordes of reporters and cameramen - and a small but boisterous protest by a group of South Koreans who oppose the last-minute agreement allowing North Korea to join in the games, which open on Friday. "That's promoting Kim Jong Un and North Korea's ideology".

Moon has supported US -led sanctions against the North, but he has repeatedly called for dialogue.


Speaking on the conditional of anonymity to describe private conversations, the officials said Moon and Pence agreed that the goal of any opening with North Korea must be denuclearization - even if there are differences in how they'd like to get there.

He foresaw North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's sister competing with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence for media attention while both attend the Olympic games.

He did not say where the planned meeting on Saturday would take place.

"We are not going to use such a sports festival as the Winter Olympics as a political lever", the official reportedly said.

North Korea is under multiple sets of UN Security Council sanctions over its banned nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes, which have seen it develop rockets capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. "The People's Army must keep in high alert and redouble its preparations for battle as the United States and its followers are making a fuss around the Korean Peninsula". The missiles on display Thursday included the Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15 ICBMs, which the North test-launched a year ago. Unlike the North´s last parade in April 2017 state television did not show the event live, instead airing it hours later.

Some analysts in the South said that the North might have decided not to ruffle too many feathers as its athletes and officials were overseas.
