North Korea sanctions tested by Nike, Samsung products — Winter Olympics

Kim Jong Un making his brief speech.

At around the same time, hundreds of North Koreans who are in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics attended a welcoming ceremony in Pyeongchang.

North Korea cleverly included sanctioned entities in its Olympics entourage.

A readout of the meeting provided by Pence's staff also mentioned nothing about North Korea dialogue. But Watt said his troops try to also remind visitors that while tense, the current situation is better than the horrors of the Korean War.

"Together with our allies and partners, we will continue to strive to peacefully dismantle North Korea's nuclear program and alleviate the suffering of its people", he said.

The Lighthouse Winmore, a Hong Kong-flagged vessel suspected of transferring oil to North Korea in defiance of international sanctions, is seen in the sea off Yeosu, South Korea on Dec. 29, 2017. "They're in total disagreement". It makes the divide between bluff and credible, scary threat all the more difficult to discern.

He said his group had asked South Korea's Unification Ministry to extend the invitation. It wasn't clear if Kim Jong Un spoke during the event, as he has on previous prominent national events. "But you, the instruments of American power, know, and let our adversaries know, all options are on the table".

That delegation will have lunch with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday.

He called for his military to maintain a high level of combat readiness against the United States and its "followers" so that "invasive forces cannot infringe upon or harass the republic's sacred dignity and autonomy even by 0.001 millimetres".

These are noble sentiments, and it is absolutely true that these games have brought some much-needed breathing space, but what they have not altered is the fundamental reality on this divided peninsula.

As CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy reports, the South Korean government said Thursday that that Moon would host North Korean delegates - including Kim Yo Jong, a senior member of the Kim regime - at a luncheon over the weekend.

Kim Yo Jong's profile has been steadily rising since 2014, when she was made deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers' Party.

South Korean tours to the resort were closed after a South Korean tourist was shot by a North Korean guard there in 2008.

The simple request for fuel could test this theory.

A spokesman for Seoul's foreign ministry spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.

Shortly before the parade was broadcast on state media, images trickled out on social media.

"I was a little scared because they were just clapping and so serious in the beginning", 15-year-old South Korean volunteer Jeon Moon-kyung said.

Iran's fury that its Winter Olympians would not receive free Samsung smartphones at the event turned into an international incident when the South Korean ambassador was summoned and told of the "insult". "But the second half is economic development".

Tanks and armored vehicles stood waiting to drive through the streets leading toward the square, along with missile transporters - usually the highlight of the parades for Pyongyang-watchers who examine them for clues about its technological progress.

"The era of strategic patience is over", he said. However, the missiles themselves may not be viable - some believe that Pyongyang does not trot out viable missiles out of fear of an accident.
