North Korean delegation arrives for Olympics closing show

North Korean delegation arrives for Olympics closing show

North Korea sent former military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol, an official accused of being behind a deadly 2010 attack on a South Korean warship, to lead its delegation.

Ivanka Trump has had no interaction with North Korean officials during her visit to South Korea, a White House official said Sunday amid keen interest in whether the two sides will resume dialogue.

Moon, who was invited a day after the opening ceremonies to Pyongyang for a summit with Kim Jong Un, also said that Washington and Pyongyang should quickly meet to "fundamentally solve" the standoff on the Korean Peninsula. The maximum pressure campaign must continue until North Korea denuclearizes.

President Donald Trump says the US will only talk to North Korea "under the right conditions".

"We will see if Pyongyang's message today, that it is willing to hold talks, represents the first steps along the path to denuclearization", it said.

Oxfam's United Kingdom chief says critics are gunning for the charity
There will be a set up of a global database of sex offenders who can not falsely re-offend other charitable trusts. Penny Mordaunt suggested Oxfam had "a long way to go before they can regain the trust of the British public".

It was not clear if the wording signaled a departure from Washington's long-held position that North Korea must take concrete steps toward disarming before talks can begin.

The United States, which stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, says any talks with North Korea must lead to an end to its nuclear programme.

Kim later sat in the VIP box at Olympic Stadium in Pyeongchang for the Olympic closing ceremonies, just feet away from Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and the top USA military commander on the peninsula, Gen. Vincent Brooks. But after Tuesday's talks, Seoul's Unification Ministry said it seemed the North no longer intends to send artists and cheerleaders but would send 20 athletes.

Moon has been working tirelessly to steer the United States and North Korea away from what he considered a collision course, urging them to open talks. President Trump called the measures targeting the country's shipping industry "the heaviest sanctions ever imposed".

On AAP vs Delhi Chief Secretary tussle, Rajnath says 'deeply pained'

Later on Sunday the White House said in a statement that "denuclearization must be the result of any dialogue with North Korea".

It's possible the USA and North Korea delegations could come into close contact in the VIP Box in the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium during the final theatrics of a Winter Olympics that is winding down after 16 days.

"Kim Yong Chol is nothing but a murderer!"

His visit drew angry protests by conservative lawmakers and activists in Seoul, with some ripping up portraits of the general and burning North Korean flags outside the hotel where he was staying.

The delegation took a different route, prompting the opposition Korea Liberty Party to accuse President Moon Jae-in's administration of "abuse of power and an act of treason" by re-routing the motorcade to shield it from the protest.
