Winter Olympics 2018: North and South Korea march together

Winter Olympics 2018: North and South Korea march together

"On a political level in Seoul, there is no wedge that can be driven between us by North Korea", Mattis said, echoing comments made by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence. "That is a very unusual time, if in fact he is trying to show a warming", Mattis said, referring to Kim Jong Un. "And that is, demand at the outset of any new dialogue or negotiations that the Kim regime put denuclearization on the table and take concrete steps with the world community to dismantle, permanently and irreversibly, their nuclear and ballistic missile programs", Pence said. But if you want to talk, well talk.

Moon's government is clearly more optimistic than the Trump administration about the potential for the Koreas' cooperation at the Olympics to create the groundwork for substantial discussions.

"We wanted to show the alliance seated together", the official said. But inside the meeting, there was a breakthrough. Moon has been pushing for a diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes. Pence asked Moon for his idea of how this engagement could be different. Moon, who was seated in front of the North Korean delegation, was photographed shaking hands with a smiling Kim.

Based on that assurance, Mr. Pence was cited as saying he felt confident he could endorse post-Olympic engagement with Pyongyang.

"Because I am an athlete I can not really answer that question", Jong said.

"I didn't know the right timing to applaud", said one South Korean spectator.

The focus on the U.S.

The show featured a surprise appearance by Seohyun, of top South Korean K-pop girlband Girls Generation.

There are other spoilers that could torpedo the new opening. That would halt the diplomatic progress in its tracks.

The women's giant slalom was to feature 81 skiers, headlined by competition favorite Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States.

"The president (of the IOC, Thomas Bach, ) nearly as a bridge sat between the president of the Republic of Korea and the honorary head of state of the DPRK last night and they were talking throughout the hockey", Adams said, using the abbreviation for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. "With his summit proposal, he seeks to incite friction between Seoul and Washington by widening their policy gap". -North Korea meetings (or lack thereof) ignores what was going on beneath the surface.
