USA says inter-Korean talks would be limited to Olympics

USA says inter-Korean talks would be limited to Olympics

It is a relief that the communication channel between the two Koreas has been reconnected after a 23-month hiatus and that Pyongyang is active in trying to hold talks with the South. "They'd be doing no talking or it would be much more serious".

On Saturday, Seoul had proposed a delegation led by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and four other members.

The politician pointed out that it is still unclear whether North Korea has the full nuclear arsenal it claims to have. "The government's basic position is that no questions from the USA and worldwide community over the potential violation of sanctions against the North should be allowed to arise in connection with North Korea's participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and Paralympics", the Ministry of Unification stated on January 5. The scope and extent of improving inter-Korean relations will apparently be determined during the talks themselves. For this reason, some in and around the administration have concluded that accommodations, meals, and other amenities could be offered to the North Korean athletes.

The new resort is the culmination of another flagship project meant to show the outside world that North Korea can thrive despite United Nations sanctions. The Blue House appears to be cautious about setting its hopes too high. The South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said consideration will need to be based on the actual scale and form of participation and method of support. "We understand the threat", Pompeo said.

The South Korea-based NK News says the work was carrying out at "Masikryong Speed", a North Korean propaganda term for the breakneck speed at which workers - many working with basic tools - constructed the country's first ski resort at Masikryong Pass. He added: "They do know how to reach us if and when they are ready to engage with us as well".

US President Donald Trump endorsed the talks Thursday, calling them a "good thing" while agreeing to delay military exercises until after the event.

This time, DPRK Today says, North Korean workers had already built their own ski lift before construction of the ski slopes at Kanggye had begun, "using our own muscle and techniques".

The meeting will take place in Panmunjom, the truce village in the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula. "The only tactic of the U.S.in this regard is to pile as much pressure on North Korea as possible, regardless of the possibility of going to war", the official Chinese Communist Party publication continued. "We've been told that North Korea is also planning to hold deliberations with the International Olympic Committee by the end of next week", said Unification Ministry Spokesperson Baek Tae-hyeon.
