These Hot Olympic Athletes Will Be Heating Up the Games in Pyeongchang

Rome: US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis cast doubt Sunday on whether North Korea's charm offensive at the Winter Olympics would lead to a lasting rapprochement between Pyongyang and Seoul.

"President Moon and President Trump are completely aligned in their objective for a nuclear free Korean Peninsula", Pence said.

Pence said Friday that the US would oppose talks between the two Koreas until the North agreed to open negotiations on ending its nuclear program.

Some North Korean experts believe tough United Nations sanctions that are cutting off most of the isolated North's sources of revenue have added pressure on Pyongyang to engage further with Seoul. The game came just 24 hours after an extraordinary opening ceremony filled with signs of unity between the two rivals. The North Koreans have invited Moon to visit Pyongyang in what would be the third inter-Korean summit talks since their 1945 division.

It was an extremely busy day for the South Korean President on Friday as he held separate one-on-ones with world leaders.

That's the precondition for the USA talking with North Korea, and all the signals so far we've seen from Washington are very stubborn. The United States fought with South Korea and maintains tens of thousands of troops and an "ironclad" agreement to protect its ally.

The younger Kim's trip to the South marks the first time that a member of the North's ruling dynasty has visited since the Korean war, which ended in an armistice in 1953.

They're having a ball if pictures taken of them at the event in Pyeongchang, South Korea, are anything to go by. The conflict, which was sparked by a North Korean vessel crossing the de facto maritime border between the Koreas, left six South Koreans and 13 North Koreans dead.

The Games has seen better ties between the two Koreas despite tensions over the North's nuclear programme.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in. On Thursday, Kim presided over an extravagant military parade in North Korea.

The frame for the still-nascent diplomatic path forward is this: The United States and its allies will not stop imposing steep and escalating costs on the Kim Jong Un regime until it takes clear steps toward denuclearization. The South hosts 28,500 US troops, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean war.

The US has given mixed signals about its willingness to talk.

The file was an indication that Kim Jong-un was sending a message not as chairman of the Workers' Party but using his newest title as chairman of the Commission on State Affairs. It replaced the National Defense Commission, the most powerful office under his late father Kim Jong-il.

Kim Yo Jong and her delegation spent three days dining with top government officials, watching the opening ceremony and cheering for the united women's ice hockey team the two Koreas have fielded at this Olympics.

As the Week noted, the International Olympics Committee has formally banned Russian Federation from participation in the games but allowed 169 athletes to compete under a neutral flag.
