Kim Jong-un hails Seoul as gracious host despite US efforts to sabotage Olympic reconciliation
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has thanked Seoul for being a gracious Winter Olympics host, describing the games as a positive step towards bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula.
Kim noted the “warm climate of reconciliation” facilitated by the winter games, and “expressed thanks” for the “sincere” and “very impressive” efforts made by Seoul to welcome the North Korean delegation during their three-day visit to PyeongChang.

“It is important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by the strong desire and common will of the North and the South with the Winter Olympics as a momentum,” Kim said while meeting with members of the delegation upon their return to Pyongyang on Monday, according to North Korean state media. After receiving the delegation Kim issued “important instructions” aimed at cultivating “the improvement of North-South relations.”

(LEAD) Kim Jong-un vows to continue reconciliation between Koreas
SEOUL, Feb. 13 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un pledged efforts to continue the reconciliatory mood with South Korea as he welcomed back a high-ranking North Korean delegation from their trip to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea, the North's state-run news agency said Tuesday.

"It is important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by the strong desire and common will of the North and the South with the Winter Olympics as a momentum," Kim was quoted in English by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) as saying in a meeting with the delegation.

Wrapping up their trip last week, the delegation led by Kim Yong-nam, the chairman of the Presidium of the North Korean assembly, reported details of their South Korean visit to Kim, the KCNA said.

Kim Yo-jong, the leader's powerful sister, relayed her brother's invitation to South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit the North during her trip to the South as a member of the delegation.

Seoul won’t rush to renew joint military drills with US as new intra-Korean summit solidifies
South Korean President Moon Jae-in reportedly rejected a call from Japan to quickly resume joint US-Korean military drills. Moon has been invited to visit Pyongyang for what may become the first top-level summit in over a decade.

At a bilateral summit on Friday, Moon called on the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to wait before resuming the drills, Yonhap reported, citing a government official. The drills have been paused for the duration of the Winter Olympics, as part of Seoul’s attempt to mend relations with Pyongyang. North Korea considers the drills a major threat to its national security, saying they may be used to conceal a build-up for an invasion.

According to the report, Abe argued that the time to delay exercises scheduled for spring was not right and that Pyongyang had to change its behavior before receiving concessions.

“I understand what Prime Minister Abe said is not to delay South Korea-U.S. military drills until there is progress in the denuclearization of North Korea. But the issue is about our sovereignty and intervention in our domestic affairs,” Moon told the Japanese leader, according to the unnamed official.“The president said it was not appropriate for the prime minister to directly mention the issue.”

North Korea’s successful development last year of a ballistic missile, which is apparently capable of reaching the US mainland, as well as carrying a small thermonuclear device, triggered a major security crisis on the Korean Peninsula. As US President Donald Trump threatened to use military force to destroy Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities, a new left-wing government in Seoul took several symbolic steps to deflate the tension, including agreeing to have a joint athletic delegation with North Korea at the Olympics.

This week, Moon received an invitation from his northern counterpart, Kim Jong-un to visit Pyongyang for a top-level summit. If accepted, it would be the first diplomatic event of its kind since 2007, when the government of President Roh Moo-hyun in Seoul attempted to mend relations as part of the Sunshine Policy.

Roh’s successor, Lee Myung-bak, came from the other side of the political spectrum and took a hardline stance on intra-Korean relations, as did President Park Geun-hye, who came from the same conservative camp. After Park was impeached, Moon was elected partially on the promise of reviving the Sunshine Policy.

Seoul Won’t Rush to Renew Joint Military Drills with US as New Intra-Korean Summit Solidifies

Pence: US Is Finally Ready to Talk to North Korea
TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Donald Trump’s administration decided that it is ready to talk to North Korea, apparently without preconditions.

“The maximum pressure campaign is going to continue and intensify,” US Vice President Mike Pence revealed to The Washington Post on his return from South Korea, adding “No pressure comes off until they are actually doing something that… represents a meaningful step toward denuclearization. But if you want to talk, we’ll talk,” Daily Caller reported.

Before he arrived in South Korea, Pence stressed that the diplomatic and economic isolation of North Korea must continue after the Olympics, a view inconsistent with that of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who hopes to see the Olympics lead to more dialogue and improved inter-Korean relations.

When Secretary of State Rex Tillerson proposed talks without preconditions a few months ago, the White House immediately responded that the US is not ready for such negotiations.

That no longer appears to be the case, as the US seems to be finally embracing the strategy of maximum pressure and engagement first mentioned early last year.

Pence and Moon reportedly worked out their differences in bilateral meetings during his visit. Moon emphasized the need for engagement but assured the Vice President that North Korea will not be given any relief from the maximum pressure campaign until it begins pursuing denuclearization.

It is unclear exactly what steps North Korea must take to relieve the pressure.

“I don’t know. That’s why you have to have talks,” Pence said when asked what Pyongyang needs to do.

Moon told Pence, who was in contact with Trump throughout his trip, that he informed the North Korean officials of the desperate need to engage the US in dialogue.

The US may be open to talks with the North, however, Pyongyang’s willingness to engage Washington in talks is less clear, especially given the demand for denuclearization, that runs contrary to North Korea’s assertion that it should be recognized as a nuclear state.

The new sanctions Pence announced in Japan may also complicate the situation.

In South Korea, Pence and the North Korean delegation avoided one another like the plague. There were no handshakes, no friendly smiles, no interaction whatsoever.
