Trump open to talks with North Korea: White House

Hawaii missile threat

Other U.S. foreign diplomatic officials - including presidential aide Jared Kushner, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson - won't attend, officials told the newspaper.

After high level delegations met for 11 hours, North and South Korea agreed to restore the emergency communication hotline between the two counties, and hold military talks to resolve disputes and avert accidental conflict, as tensions remain high over North Korea's efforts to develop nuclear missiles capable of hitting the United States.

At Saturday's Camp David news conference, Trump also spoke of his willingness to hold phone talks with Kim.

Also, both leaders stressed "the importance of continuing the campaign of providing maximum pressure against the North Korean government".

Ri Son-gwon, chair of North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, reads a joint press statement during the inter-Korean talks held at the Peace House in Panmunjeom on January 9.

Relations then broke down after Seoul suspended a joint economic project at the Kaesong Industrial complex in North Korea following a rocket launch and nuclear test by the North. Soaring tensions could meanwhile disrupt the Games, which represent the South's most prominent moment on the global stage since Seoul staged the Summer Olympics in 1988. Any threat to the snow and ice spectacular could also endanger a huge United States delegation led by Vice President Mike Pence.

The Torch-bearing opening ceremony took place on 16 December 2017 in Seoul, capital of South Korea, and countries from across the world were represented at the ceremony. "And I know more about wedges than any human being that's lived". Trump told reporters as he met members of his Cabinet at the White House.

Marcotte, who also coaches a team from South Korea, first spoke with Ryom and Kim early a year ago at the Asian Winter Games in Japan, congratulating them on their performance and improvement.

And South Korea, you should be pleased that we're giving you the gift of our participation in the Winter Olympics.

Trump himself took credit for the renewed contacts between the ROK and North Korea at Camp David.

Trump addressed the fiery and furious tone of his tweets that were aimed at North Korea during the first year of his administration, and said that it was how he created friendlier ties with people.

"Frankly, it's an agreement that I have no problem with, but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed, because, as usual, they made a bad deal", Trump said. According to the Swedish diplomat, Stockholm hails the progress reached in the talks between the two Koreas and thinks that North Korea's participation in the Olympic Games is good news.

His counterpart, South Korea's Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, also expressed optimism.

As well as the Olympics, the two sides could bring up their own priority issues, which analysts say will be much more challenging. The South should respond to the North's honest efforts toward easing tensions, it urged.
