'No Problem With That': Trump Ready for Talks With DPRK

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang welcomed North and South Korea "taking positive steps to improve ties", and said the postponement of the exercises was "without doubt a good thing".

A North Korean official says his country will likely take part in the upcoming Winter Olympics held in archrival South Korea as fears of war on the divided peninsula continue to subside.

"The will to enhance North-South relations must be backed up not by words, but by practical actions to foster inter-Korean reconciliation and unity, and reunification", it said. He is recovering after being shot five times by his former comrades. But critics say the North's abrupt push to improve ties may be a tactic to divide Seoul and Washington and weaken global pressure and sanctions on Pyongyang.

US President Donald Trump said Saturday he would be willing to speak directly with Kim Jong-Un, voicing hope that rare talks between North and South Korea could help deescalate the crisis over Pyongyang's nuclear drive. President Donald Trump quickly responded that he had a nuclear button of his own.

Some have expressed uncertainty over the significance of next week's talks and the North's possible participation in the Games. "This isn't going to happen overnight, as we've seen, but it's a risky situation", Haley said on ABC's "This Week".

Moon also said he wouldn't take a soft stance with the North and vowed to strengthen South Korea's military. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis insisted the delay was a practical necessity to accommodate the Olympics, not a political gesture.

The South Korean delegation will include two deputy ministers from the Unification Ministry and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and the vice-president of games planning for the Pyeongchang Organising Committee. But South Korea and the USA said that the exercises were defensive in nature. "However, it is expected that the two sides will reach an agreement on the North's participation in the Olympics, but for other issues including security matters, each side will make claims and listen to the other".

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Trump was keeping Kim Jong Un "on his toes". We're very firm. But I would be, absolutely I would do that.

North Korea regularly threatens to destroy the United States and its two key Asia allies, Japan and South Korea, and says its weapons are necessary to counter U.S. aggression.

Tensions have been high after the North carried out multiple missile launches in 2017, including a number of inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBM), and its sixth atomic test, by far its most powerful to date.
