National Campaign to Purge 'Non-socialist' Elements Terrifies North Koreans

US President Donald Trump has signalled that he has developed a "good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, despite tensions between them.

"I wish people would talk about how good the pair is", said Marcotte, who feels they could finish top 10 at the world championships this year. You don't have to look hard here to find people who are sure President Moon Jae-In is falling into a "trap" set by Kim to ensnare him into more or less having to accede to whatever he wants, beginning with the breakup of the U.S. -ROK alliance. "I'm a very flexible person".

North and South Korea's Olympic officials will meet at the International Olympic Committee's headquarters in Switzerland next week to hammer out the details of the North's participation.

But the analysis of satellite images suggests that although the North Portal of the site - where the last five nuclear tests were conducted - remains "dormant", tunnel excavation in the West Portal has been "stepped up".

The South Korean Unification Ministry says it proposed a second round of talks with North Korea for January 15. He's insisting this week that talk of a USA military strike (which he had encouraged) is "completely wrong", and calling for discussions with North Korea "under the right circumstances".

None of that, however, means North Korea has any intention of slowing its drive for more powerful nuclear missiles and warheads, specifically those that would allow it to hit the US. But they may prove sensitive coming the same month as the Winter Olympics, which are to be hosted by South Korea beginning February 9.

North Korea has not yet responded to the plan from South Korea but it is likely it will be raised if the two countries hold talks in Panmunjeom next week.

The biggest impact by the North Korean delegation at Pyeongchang might be by the cheerleading squad or performance art group it plans to send.

"They should totally stop military drills, not just delay them".

There seems to be disagreement among administration officials on how to handle North Korea, as was observed when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered to sit down with the North Koreans "without precondition".

An Chan-Il, a defector researcher who runs the World Institute for North Korea Studies, said the cheerleaders are cherry-picked by the regime based on tough criteria.

Trump's public response to the intra-Korean meeting has been mostly positive though at times tinged with skepticism.

SOUTH Korea has proposed marching together with North Korea at next month's Winter Olympics opening ceremony and also forming a joint women's ice hockey team, a government minister said today.

"Not helpful enough, but they have been very helpful".

"If the South Korean authorities really want detente and peace, they should first stop all the military acts they have waged with the U.S. against their brethren", Efe quoted an article in the Workers' Party of North Korea's newspaper Rodong Sinmun as saying.

Still, Washington will be unhappy if South Korea can be persuaded to resume closer economic ties with the North, for example by reopening several cross-border economic zones.
