News Brief: Budget Deadline, North Korea's Military Parade

The North's attendance has eased tensions over its nuclear threats and triggered a rapid rapprochement on the divided Korean peninsula.

Facing a government shutdown deadline, senators passed a 2-year budget deal but there are hurdles.

Unlike the North's last parade in April 2017 its state television did not show the event live.

South Korea wants to use the games to re-engage with the North and encourage friendly encounters between Pyongyang and Washington, but is also anxious to avoid any awkward moments - a tall order, according to officials in Seoul.

Internet access in North Korea is extremely limited to regular citizens, with a just tightly controlled handful of state-run websites accessible.

Abe echoed Pence's comments through a translator, urging countries "not to be lured by the charm offensive of North Korea".

On July 4th, a very similar eight-wheel launcher showed up in a North Korean photo said to show Kim watching the launch of a two-stage intercontinental ballistic missile test. That missile reached an altitude of 1,730 miles, which on a different trajectory could have given it the range to hit U.S. military bases in Guam.

Athletes from both Koreas will compete as one team in the games opening Friday that senior officials from the North will attend.

"We will not allow North Korean propaganda to hijack the message and imagery of the Olympic Games", Pence added.

However, since arriving in the region, Pence has taken a more strident tone, saying American "resolve" had not wavered in bringing international pressure against Pyongyang.

The group included a 229-member cheer squad as well as taekwondo performers, journalists and four North Korean Olympics committee members, including the sports minister.

Games organizers have picked up on Moon's theme of peace and reconciliation.

The world may get a preview of North Korea's post-Olympics plans at a grand military parade in Pyongyang Thursday, one the eve of the Olympic Opening Ceremony. "The athletes' minders from the North Korean government were unlikely to let them use phones with unfettered, high-speed access to the internet, which would be strictly forbidden in their isolated home country".

There are no good options here, but what is certain is that North Korea's capability is advancing, and this current truce is temporary.

The North's conciliatory moves related to the Olympics have generally been welcomed in the South.

Therefore, it is extremely disappointing that the Trump administration would exploit the Olympics as an opportunity to push its own agenda.

The White House hopes that sanctions will slow the development of the country's missile program, and strangle the economy to the point where North Korea would put its nuclear weapons on the negotiating table. "And we don't feel the need".

"It was nice to skate with (the North Koreans)".

But on his way to Asia, he left open the possibility of meeting any of Pyongyang's representatives.

"The United States is with you in this challenge". "They were praiseworthy considering that they are making efforts on such a big stage at young ages".

One of those daughters is Kim Sol-song, whose mother is the bride whom Kim Il-sung selected for his son Jong-il.

Meanwhile, North Korea's taekwondo demonstration squad will hold four joint performances with their South Korean counterparts to celebrate the February 9-25 Winter Games.

The Washington Examiner notes that Pence strove to send the message that the Winter Olympics will not "distract from the bellicose North Korean human rights abuses and nuclear program".
