NKorea in Winter Olympics Won't Affect US Participation — WH

The group might stay on a cruise ship in Sokcho, about an hour's drive from the Olympic venue.

Seoul and Pyongyang also decided to hold separate military talks after agreeing that they should make joint efforts to ease military tensions, create a peaceful environment on the Korean Peninsula, and promote reconciliation and unity of the two Koreas.

The North's hopes for reunification negotiations that favour its position while excluding or minimising the role of the United States are a tough sell in the South. At that event, North Korea won seven medals, including two golds, making it one of the country's most successful Olympics. The triumph is that they're competing at all.

"But thankfully, North Korea came to dialogue before tensions were heightened further", he said. Ryom and Kim have qualified under IOC rules, but the two didn't register in time.

With the opening ceremonies less than a month away, the Canadian Olympic Committee has yet to state what the Canadian team's medal target is for Pyeongchang. North Korea said its delegation would include athletes, high-ranking officials, a cheering squad, art performers, reporters and spectators.

Seoul said North Korea had finished technical work to restore a military hotline, with normal communications set to resume on Wednesday.

The U.S. and Chinese governments were generally upbeat over North Korea's decision to join the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea.

South Korea announced Tuesday that North Korea would join the Olympics next month in Pyeongchang. "This is exactly the kind of dialogue that we said was necessary", a Kremlin spokesman said.

US president Donald Trump has a much closer relationship with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe than he does with Moon, and has claimed credit for the North-South talks himself.

People from the two Koreas have been banned from visiting and contacting each other since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a formal peace treaty.
