Kim Jong Un impersonator thrown out of Olympic hockey game

Open this

The United States has appeared to endorse deeper post-Olympics engagement between the two Koreas that could lead to talks between Pyongyang and Washington. "And he tweeted out links to Human Rights Watch and other global bodies that basically show you how insane and monstrous North Korea is".

Pence's remarks are in line with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who said in December that the US was ready to talk to the North without preconditions. "Our goal is a peaceful settlement". But he didn't advocate a change in USA policy, telling the committee that the State Department's campaign to pressure North Korea to abandon its nuclear program is "what we should be doing".

In response to a question about Kim Jong Un's intentions and strategy, Harris did not hesitate to share his view.

At the Four Continents, Ryom and Kim won the bronze medal, becoming the first skaters from North Korea to win a medal at an ISU event.

However, the North Koreans were given an additional berth by the International Olympic Committee last month.

But given conflicting signals in the past from Trump and his aides over diplomacy with North Korea, it remained unclear whether Pence's remarks would mean a shift in U.S. strategy.

That sentiment was repeated by Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who said Moon had agreed it was necessary to keep up maximum pressure on North Korea.

The couple's presence at the Games was only confirmed following a sudden rapprochement between the two Koreas after tensions reached fever pitch as Pyongyang carried out a series of weapons tests. Earlier Tuesday, North Korea's United Nations mission called him "human scum" and Trump's invitation of the defector to the State of the Union address "desperate attempts" to keep up "its "human rights" racket" against the country.

Upon his arrival back to D.C., Pence tweeted that the USA policy on North Korea is "unchanged". "I believe that North Korea wants to buy some time to continue their nuclear missile programme".

"I think it behooves us and our Korean allies not to be charmed and consider North Korea for the regime it is and to deal with it on the basis of fact and not charm", Harris said, referring to the apparently cheery appearances of North Korean officials and performers at the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Pence also said Pyongyang's alleged human rights violations factored into his decision to ignore Kim Yo Jong, citing the country's political prisons - where it's estimated about 100,000 people are incarcerated - the execution of Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Un's uncle, and the killing of the leader's half brother, Kim Jong Nam.

She became the first member of the Kim dynasty to visit the South since the Korean War of 1950-1953.

Mr Pence said that the United States would continue imposing sanctions and putting pressure on Pyongyang, but added that it was open to talks.

Mr Moon did not immediately accept the North Korean offer.

Kim noted the "warm climate of reconciliation" facilitated by the winter games, and "expressed thanks" for the "sincere" and "very impressive" efforts made by Seoul to welcome the North Korean delegation during their three-day visit to PyeongChang.

South Korea is considering footing the bill for North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics.

The testimony from Harris, an officer who's been in uniform for almost 40 years and speaks bluntly, came as athletes from North Korea are participating in the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
