Trump Pick for Ambassador Warned Against Attacking North Korea

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told reporters he is pleased that relations have improved between North and South Korea but the key challenge continues to be achieving the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. FILE

"Pyeongchang's Olympic appeal is rubbing off on Masikryong", said Lee Choong-ki, a professor of tourism at Seoul's Kyung Hee University.

They also promised to intensify cooperation on other global issues, such as development, climate change, cyber security and humanitarian assistance, the ministry said.

At the same time, some say the North is seeking to gain advantage from its participation, and reports say it will mark the anniversary of the founding of its regular military with a major military parade a day before the opening ceremony.

The South Korean government has stated that an inter-Korean reconciliation would help efforts to denuclearize the North and to promote stability in the zone.

In his piece at the Post, Cha agrees.

The report could have been a pre-emptive attack on the president who, during his State of the Union address, warned that "North Korea's reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland", adding, "No regime has oppressed its own citizens more totally or brutally than the cruel dictatorship in North Korea". Cha wrote. "And if Kim is unpredictable, impulsive and bordering on irrational, how can we control the escalation ladder, which is premised on an adversary's rational understanding of signals and deterrence?"

North Korea's cultural delegation will travel to the South early next week ahead of their performances held on the occasion of the Pyeongchang Olympics, South Korea's Unification Ministry said.

He said his administration is applying "maximum pressure", military and diplomatic, in a so-far unsuccessful attempt to stop Kim from developing the capability to directly threaten the United States.

Cha said the U.S. "must build a maritime coalition around North Korea involving rings of South Korean, Japanese and broader U.S. assets to intercept any nuclear missiles or technologies leaving the country".

"An ominous signal", the Korea Joongang Daily said in an editorial.

The DPRK athlete delegation, composed of 10 athletes, three coaches and 18 supporting personnel, will be led by Won Kil-u, the DPRK's vice minister of physical sports.

'You are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world, and your strength inspires us all, ' Trump said.

While South Korea currently bans tourists from traveling north, the thaw over the Olympics brings the countries closer to dialogue on restoring lucrative cross-border tours that once brought Kim's regime millions of dollars a year.

Trump has not nominated an ambassador.

There is a rest area with a capacity of 200 people at the top of the slope. Kim has shown no sign of willingness to give in to US demands and negotiate away a weapons program he sees as vital to his survival.

In addition to the existing economic sanctions approved by the 15-member UNSC, Washington has imposed unilateral punitive measures. "A great American leader will fashion strategies that ensure that ISIS and al Qaeda don't return".

He added that he would be very careful not to repeat the mistakes that were made by previous administrations whose foreign policy only served to get the United States in a situation that was very dangerous.

"If that leadership and those values were what you were listening for, you were sorely disappointed".
