North Korea accepts South Korea's peace talk proposal

South Korean and North Korean leaders will meet again for the first time since late 2015

Tensions over North Korea's nuclear program had threatened to hang over the Games in Pyeongchang, a city about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the border dividing the Korean Peninsula.

But the United States should also communicate that if North Korea does immediately stop that there would be an immediate meeting of North Korea, the United States, China and Japan to establish a nuclear non-proliferation treaty for the region and very serious and significant economic and financial aid and assistance to North Korea from all four countries.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times, '" Trump wrote.

Ribbons bearing messages wishing for unification between the two Koreas hang on a barbed-wire fence near the militarized zone separating the two Koreas, in Paju, South Korea, December 21, 2017.

Mirroring Seoul's representatives, North Korea drew a list of officials in similar positions in its government, including Mr Ri.

"Absolutely, I would do that", Trump said.


U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday called the proposed inter-Korean talks a "good thing", and he and his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in announced that annual large-scale military drills would now take place after the Olympics. The head of U.S. forces in South Korea warned on Thursday against raising hopes over North Korea's peace overture. "If I weren't involved they wouldn't be talking at all right now", he said. "Because there are so many practical matters to deal with, such as putting together a support team and a team of people to attend the reunions, we're hesitant to jump to conclusions about whether or not an agreement can be reached during the meeting". If North Korea responds by suspending military tests, then the "dual suspension" will be in effect, which Russian Federation and China-and Lyndon and Helga LaRouche-say is required to move to negotiations for a durable settlement. "We want to always remind them we can destroy you too, so be very cautious and careful with your words and what you do".

Since North Korea is not a direct threat to China, China has only recently imposed any meaningful pressure on North Korea to stop the North Korean nuclear development, but not enough.

South Korea's Defence Ministry has said it had yet to see any evidence of an imminent missile launch.

Earlier this week, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Washington had heard reports that Pyongyang might be preparing to fire another missile. The scope and extent of improving inter-Korean relations will apparently be determined during the talks themselves.

Pompeo said he still believed, as he had said in October, that North Korea is just a few months away from crossing the threshold to putting a U.S. city at risk of nuclear attack.
