President Donald Trump says an upcoming announcement about North Korea is “almost beyond” talks between Washington and Pyongyang.
It seems a brazen choice, even for North Korea. As South Korea’s liberal president seeks to use the Olympics to improve ties, North Korea has chosen to send the alleged mastermind of two attacks that killed 50 South Koreans in 2010 to the games’ closing ceremony.
North Korea is sharply criticizing U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for supporting sanctions to pressure the country into negotiations with the U.S. on denuclearization, saying he appears to be acting as a “henchman” representing the United States.
The United States doesn’t have a “bloody nose” strategy for North Korea, senators of both parties and a Trump administration official said Thursday, rejecting claims the U.S. wants to strike the North’s nuclear program in a way that avoids an all-out war.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s younger sister took her place among dignitaries from around the world, including U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, at the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Friday in an unprecedented visit to South Korea.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, an increasingly prominent figure in the country’s leadership, will be part of the North’s delegation to the South Korean Winter Olympics, officials said Wednesday.
