Shinzo Abe says US, Japan, S.Korea cooperation on N.Korea is firm

The spectacle was greeted with apparent joy by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his guest, Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The rare meeting began shortly after 11 a.m. and ended at 1:46 p.m., an official from the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

The Secretary-General had a brief exchange with Kim on the sidelines of the opening of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Farhan Haq, UN deputy spokesman, told reporters at UN Headquarters in NY, reports Xinhua.

The parade, marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the North Korean army, was attended by leader Kim Jong Un and other senior officials.

Kim Yo Jong is the first member of the ruling Kim family bearing the bloodline of the sacred Mount Paektu, a centerpiece of the North's idolization and propaganda campaign, to cross the border into the South since the 1950-53 Korean War.

"At a time like this when the USA and its followers are making such a fuss around the Korean peninsula, our military should remain on high alert and increase our preparedness to fight", he said in a speech delivered as North Korean cheerleaders paraded in...

A South Korean and a DPRK female ice hockey player passed the Olympic flame to the final torchbearer Kim Yuna, who lit the Olympic cauldron at the main stadium.

During Pence's visit, Moon assured the vice president he would tell the North Koreans clearly that they would not get economic or diplomatic concessions for just talking, only for taking concrete steps toward denuclearization, the newspaper said.

A Reuters analysis shows there has been a gradual decline in conventional weapons on display since 2012, Kim Jong Un's first parade as leader, and a move to showcase more sophisticated weapons such as ballistic missiles.

As they shook hands, the North and South Koreans spoke briefly.

North Korea has made clear that it does not intend to negotiate away its nuclear and missile programs in return for relief from worldwide sanctions.

US college student Otto Warmbier was captured in North Korea in 2016, authorities said for stealing a sign praising leader Kim Jong Un. Pence carried a similar message during his trip to Japan and South Korea.

Dressed in long, white padded jackets, they followed the flag with a blue silhouette of the Korean Peninsula against a white background.

The spokesman says Moon replied that the North and South should continue to work to build conditions so that a summit can take place.

The North has refrained from further provocations since testing an intercontinental ballistic missile in November.

Though Moon has used the Olympics to resurrect meaningful communication with North Korea after a diplomatic stalemate over its nuclear program, he didn't immediately jump on the North Korean offer for a summit.

The North has sent almost 500 people to the Pyeongchang Games, including officials, athletes, artists and also a 230-member state-trained cheering group after the Koreas agreed to a series of conciliatory gestures for the games.
