Pence Says US Ready to Open Talks With North Korea

Pence Says US Ready to Open Talks With North Korea

CNN global correspondent Will Ripley said Monday that North Korea leader Kim Jong Un's sister's visit to the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, was a diplomatic victory for North Korea and a defeat for the U.S.

Coach Sarah Murray is right in the middle of the controversy between North Korea and South Korea.

Howard had caused a commotion during the February 9 opening ceremony when he and a person dressed as U.S. President Donald Trump were swiftly shown out of the stadium by security staff.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) was not happy that Vice President Mike Pence refused to clap for North Korea at the Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday.

On Saturday Kim Yo Jong "courteously" handed over a personal letter from the North Korean leader to Moon and told him of her brother's "intention", North Korea's state news agency KCNA said, without elaborating what that was.

Harris replied that North Korea was clearly engaged in a "charm offensive", but that he believes the commander of U.S. Forces Korea, Gen. Vincent Brooks, is capable of countering that.

The atmospherics were great as Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, was the cynosure of all eyes at the Winter Olympics in South Korea's Pyeongchang.

CNN has fallen in love at the Winter Olympics-with North Korea, the oppressive, backwards dictatorship that is threatening nuclear holocaust on the free world.

Mr Moon, who was offered a meeting with Mr Kim in Pyongyang via his sister, has been pushing for a diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes.

"Despite potential talks, and irrespective of if they happen w/USA or S. Korea, new strong sanctions are coming very soon and the maximum pressure campaign will only intensify until North Korea abandons its nuclear program", Pence tweeted.

A senior North Korean Foreign Ministry official, however, said earlier this month, "We have never begged for talks with the United States and it will be the same ahead".

He said war had forged "the core of the bond" between the US and South Korea and that helps explains "why there is no daylight and there will be no daylight" between the two. We have said, from the diplomatic side, we are ready to talk any time North Korea would like to talk.

"I was so angry", she continued.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump have discussed North Korea by phone, but the discussion was not in-depth, a Kremlin spokesman has said.
