S. Korea's Moon wants more talks to resolve North nuke issue

People watch a live broadcast of South Korean President Moon Jae-in's New Year's speech at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul South Korea Wednesday Jan. 10 2018. Moon said he'll push for more talks and cooperation with North Korea to resolve the nucle

Despite its international isolation, North Korea has a surprisingly successful history of participation in the Olympics that goes back 45 years.

The meeting was held at the Panmunjeom in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in Paju, South Korea.

North Korea said Tuesday that it would send athletes and a high-level delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang after the first official talks between the countries in more than two years amid high tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Possibly. But for now, at least, it appears the two Koreas have taken the reins. "If I was Japan or South Korea, I would be asking 'what are we, chopped liver?' The supposed to be protecting them". In an interview with the Associated Press, Secretary of State Tillerson said, "Is this the beginning of something?"

Unlike the US' April 7 strike on a Syrian airbase in response to the regime's use of chemical weapons, the US couldn't just pull up a guided-missile destroyer to North Korea's coast and let 59 cruise missiles rip.

The hope this year is that North Korean figure skaters Ryom Tae Ok and Kim Ju Sik will change that.

Moon, a liberal who favors a peaceful, diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue, still said he "keeps myself open to any meeting including the summit" with Kim if it could help improve inter-Korean ties and resolve the nuclear tension.

Seoul has also proposed the two Koreas hold "Red Cross talks" on the possibility of organizing reunions of families separated by the Korean War.

Critics claim Kim may be trying to divide Seoul and Washington in a bid to weaken international pressure and sanctions.

Moon also says he will call for more talks with North Korea to help defuse the nuclear issue. It conducted its sixth nuclear test and fired three intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) last year. Canada was third in 2010 and will tie with Norway for second in 2014 at 26 medals. North Korea said its delegation would include athletes, high-ranking officials, a cheering squad, art performers, reporters and spectators.

However, the PyeongChang Paralympics are scheduled to be held from March 9-18, which would likely overlap with the planned military drills.

Here are some of the other details known about North Korea's participation in the games scheduled to begin in a few weeks in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The North cut communications in February 2016, following the South's decision to shut down a jointly run industrial park located in the North.

North Korea accepted Seoul's dialogue offer Friday after the South and the United States agreed to postpone their military drills until after the Olympics.

Canada's medal haul from 2014 will also be 26 (10, 10 and 6) when the luge relay team is officially upgraded from fourth to bronze.

North and South Korean athletes have marched together at some previous Olympics during periods of warmer relations between the two governments, and South Korea has suggested a repeat in Pyeongchang.

The atmosphere was friendlier than at past meetings, and Cho told Ri: "The people have a strong desire to see the North and South move toward peace and reconciliation".
