North Korea: Cracks in US-Japan-South Korea alliance start to show

But he is largely considered a figurehead whose public diplomatic role, representing the country at global events, leaves it unclear how much political power he really has.

You can see some images of Kim at the meeting with Moon below.

"We have never begged for dialogue with the USA and will be the same in the future", Cho Yong-sam, a senior official at the North's foreign ministry, was quoted as saying by the communist state's official Korean Central News Agency.

The North Korean artists performed Thursday in Gangneung, a coastal city that will host the skating, hockey and curling events during the games, and are to perform again in Seoul.

Moon's office said he told Abe that the talks between the Koreas would not disrupt global efforts to deal with North Korea's nuclear program.

A visit by Moon to the North would be only the third inter-Korean summit to take place.

The divided Koreas have held two inter-Korean summits, both in Pyongyang, with the second summit held between the late South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun and the late Kim Jong-il in 2007. Then, the vice president's tour around the Cheonan Memorial with Warmbier and North Korean defectors provided a sobering pregame to the Olympic opening ceremony's technicolored presentation of peace and cooperation.

In an article released by the state-run Korea Central News Agency on January 26, a spokesman for the Japan-Korea Interchange Association accused "Japanese reactionaries" of "hindering the inter-Korean dialogue and the warming situation on the Korean Peninsula".




A rare show of unity by North and South Korea has occurred at the opening of the Winter Olympics.

Pyongyang conducted its largest nuclear test past year and said it had developed a missile capable of carrying a warhead to the United States.

The American President Donald Trump, on the other hand, who seemingly got inspired by the idea of parades after observing Bastille Day celebrations in France, called for the U.S.to have a military parade of its own.

During Friday night's Opening Ceremony, PyeongChang Stadium erupted with applause when the delegations from North and South Korea marched in unison under one flag. USA officials have grown increasingly dire in their warnings about the North's march toward developing an operational nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capable of reaching the continental U.S.

A high-level North Korean delegation including leader Kim Jong Un's sister has arrived at a train station in Pyeongchang hours ahead of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

The two Koreas have been divided since the conflict ended in a ceasefire in 1953, and the democratic South has risen to become the world's 11th-largest economy, while the North has stagnated under the Kim family's rule.

The delegations shared a lunch of dried pollack dumpling soup, a regional specialty of the only divided province on the Korean peninsula, and soju, a spirit popular on both sides of the heavily militarized border.
