N.Korean newspaper covers delegation to South

N.Korean newspaper covers delegation to South

The officials said it was fair to say both Pence and the North Koreans rebuffed South Korean President Moon Jae-in's efforts to facilitate a meeting between North Korea and the US.

"What we'd like to achieve by coming to South Korea at the Winter Olympics", Howard told the newspaper, "is that to show the world this is what peace could look like when two leaders get along".

The two leaders adopted a joint peace declaration after the three-day meeting, agreeing to promote independent unification and humanitarian and economic cooperation.

South Korean television showed a smiling Moon entering a reception room and shaking hands with the North Koreans, who also included Choe Hwi, chairman of the country's National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North's agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs.

In August 2009, then South Korean President Lee Myung-bak met with a condolence delegation led by DPRK senior officials in Seoul.

It is rare for Japan's prime minister to communicate with a high-ranking official from North Korea's Workers' Party.

In a meeting with the South Korean president on Thursday, Pence said the United States will continue to put maximum pressure on the North until the reclusive state comes to the dialogue table to discuss its "permanent" and "irreversible" denuclearization. Analysts say that the missiles, which were successfully flight tested three times past year, could potentially reach deep into the USA mainland when perfected.

Despite only being half-brother to the North Korean leader, the two are understood to a have a very close connection. "They work hard, great attitude, so it's really going well", she added. As the head of North Korea's parliament, he became the most powerful North Korean to visit their southern neighbors in 65 years, per Telegraph.

Pence had said all week that if he met with the North Koreans, he would deliver a tough message.

Mr Moon may also, analysts said, demand a chance for families divided by the border to reunite.

The North has sent almost 500 people to the Pyeongchang Games, including officials, athletes, artists and also a 230-member state-trained cheering group after the Koreas agreed to a series of conciliatory gestures for the games. "He cheered for the US", the official said. All the players are the same, they just want to win. "He's biased for the Americans".
