Heading home, Pence insists 'no daylight' on North Korea

12 February 2018

North and South Korea have shared a heavily fortified border since the Korean War ended in a ceasefire, not a peace treaty.

"They didn't kick us out, we had tickets".

Ms Kim invited Mr Moon to visit "at the early date possible", a spokesman for South Korea's presidential palace said.

The meeting took place after Kim Yo Jong and other North Korean delegates attended the Olympics' opening ceremony.

At the opening ceremonies Friday, Pence sat stone-faced in his seat as Moon and North Korean officials stood together with much of the stadium to applaud their joint team of athletes.

But the 72-run partnership between the two came off just 43 balls and changed the complexion of the game in quick time. When the match resumed, Dhawan was the first to be dismissed, driving Morne Morkel to AB de Villiers at mid-off.

On his flight to Alaska on Saturday, the vice president said he left Asia "encouraged that we will continue to work very closely to continue and intensify the maximum pressure campaign" against North Korea. "We all join and support you in your message of peace", Bach said.

Another demonstrator shouted: 'Having these red communists in the heart of Seoul is an utter humiliation!'

Many experts say Kim's overture is meant to use improved ties with Seoul as a way to weaken USA -led worldwide sanctions toughened after its series of big weapons tests past year that include its sixth and largest nuclear test explosion and three intercontinental ballistic missile launches.

Some even went so far as to set a North Korean flag on fire, prompting police to intervene. While it would be a diplomatic coup for Moon, who was elected on a promise to pursue warmer relations with the North, it could strain relations with the United States, which has appeared uncomfortable at the warm welcome afforded to the North Korean delegation over the past few days.

"The leader of North Korea has to be worshipped as god, and this will not change unless the regime collapses". Moon's chief of staff held a farewell dinner for the delegation before the delegation attended a performance by a North Korean orchestra, the last item on their itinerary before heading home. "The North is not interested in talks on denuclearisation".

Pierce, who retired at the end of last season, watched the game from his sideline seat, waiting for the postgame ceremony. Brown is a gifted athlete with advanced defensive capability for his age and an improving perimeter game.

That, predictably, was the image that North Korea's main newspaper put on its front pages.

The Korean women's hockey team, the first in Olympic history to combine players from North and South, took the ice Saturday night for their debut game in front of a raucous, sellout crowd on another historic night mixing sports and politics on an global stage.

"Make no mistake about it, the United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea but, that being said, we hope for a better path", he said.

Past "charm offensives" have been interpreted as North Korea trying to recoup from crippling sanctions on its nuclear program, or trying to drive a wedge between Seoul and its US ally.

North Korea has spent years developing its military, saying it needs to protect itself from U.S. aggression. Normally dressed in blazing red, they paraded in wearing grey and white jackets and seemed - uncommonly for that delegation - quite sedate.

Trump explains refusal to declassify Dems' memo
We've been expecting to hear what the president would do about this Democratic memo by the Democrats on the House intel committee. Fusion GPS had been hired by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to produce the dossier.

But North Korea has a habit of not letting itself be ignored when it comes to its southern rival.
