South Korea takes call for unity with grain of salt


"I honestly don't put much pressure on myself going into the Games but I have one thing on my mind and that's getting on the podium", said Hill, who was eighth in snowboardcross in Sochi, Russia in 2014.

Twenty-three North Koreans arrived in the South via the Kaesong route.

The international media's focus on Hyon, and on unfounded rumors she is the paramour of leader Kim Jong Un, are all working in the North's favor, the source said.

On Jan. 9, North Korea agreed to send athletes to the Winter Olympics.

Washington also sanctioned two Chinese groups, Beijing Chengxing Trading Co and Dandong Jinxiang Trade, for allegedly exporting goods to North Korean firms that were included on the UN sanctions list. The particular hotline that was reopened is located in the "truce village" of Panmunjom in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates the two Koreas. Accommodation for the North Korean athletes, national Olympics committee, cheerleaders and taekwondo demonstration team will also be checked.

They later traveled to the city of Gangneung to see the venues for sports including figure skating and ice hockey.

A dozen North Korean ice hockey players crossed the heavily fortified border into South Korea ahead of the games next month. The Korean Peninsula flag will be flown during this occasion.

Still, Wednesday's protest at Seoul's National Assembly, led by North Korea-born activist Park Sang-hak, may trigger an angry response from the North, which is extremely sensitive to what it sees as insults to its supreme leadership. It's also not a courteous way to act toward a neighbor that has its hands full trying to get ready for the Games.

Among the new designations are 10 individuals associated with the Korea Ryonbong General Corp., which Treasury said specializes in acquisitions for the defense industries and probable procurements supporting chemical weapons development. That year unified teams competed in the World Table Tennis Championships and the FIFA World Youth Championships. It is said to have suggested a lower-key Jinhae naval base, but the sub instead diverted to a U.S. base in Japan.

North Korea sent an incredibly rare public message to 'all Koreans at home and abroad' today, calling for unification with South Korea.

The Pyeongchang Winter Games have triggered an apparent rapprochement on the divided peninsula, where tensions have been high over the nuclear-armed North's weapons ambitions.

A joint conference of North Korean government, political parties and organizations has issued a call to all Koreans to unite and pursue "independent unification", a statement carried by the state-controlled news agency KCNA on Thursday read.
