North Korea accepts Olympic talks offer

North Korea accepts Olympic talks offer

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un said in a New Year's Day address that the Olympics would be a "good occasion" to show the greatness of the Korean people and suggested that Pyongyang was willing to send a delegation to the Games. "But we have a very firm stance".

"But I'm pretty sure that they think the voices urging dialogue don't speak for the President of the United States".

"Absolutely, I would do that", Trump said.

Trump added that Kim "knows I'm not messing around". I'm not messing around. Not even a little bit, not even one percent. Not even 1%. He understands that.

"We hope the two Koreas will sit down and find a solution to lower tensions and establish peace on the Korean peninsula", he added.

But as things go on a different tangent from what the USA expected in the Korean peninsula, President Trump seems to be now trying to "steal" the credit for the talks. That would be a great thing for the world.

"We will closely consult with the United States in the process of South-North Korea dialogue and we are confident that South-North Korea dialogue helps create an atmosphere for dialogue between the USA and North Korea on resolving the North Korean nuclear issue", Moon was quoted as saying. He again warned he would launch a nuclear strike if his country was threatened.

'Committed' Conte will not walk out on Chelsea
The Chelsea manager, 48, has said he " will not forget " about the latest war of words and neither will we. The England worldwide missed Saturday's FA Cup draw at Fleetwood but will make the trip to west London.

The latest comments from Pyongyang come a day after North and South Korea - who are technically still at war following a three-year conflict in the 1950s - agreed to hold rare talks next week.

"I'd like to see them getting involved in the Olympics and maybe things go from there".

The Japanese news agency Kyodo said Chang made the brief comment to reporters during a stopover at Beijing's worldwide airport.

Since then the two sides have reopened a communications hotline and agreed to talks next week at Panmunjom, in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula, while Washington has agreed to a request by Seoul to postpone joint military drills that always infuriate Pyongyang until after the Olympics and Paralympics.

Trump appeared to give himself credit for the meeting during his press conference with reporters.

"I think the Trump administration might be interested in talks with North Korea to see if they are honest about denuclearization", said Shin Beom-chul, a professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy in Seoul.

Those talks are expected to focus on matters including Olympic participation. "It's very important that we don't ever let him get so arrogant that he doesn't realize the reality of what would happen if he started a nuclear war", Haley said on ABC's "This Week".
