South sends delegation to resort in North

South sends delegation to resort in North

Experts speculate that last-minute change was meant to keep South Korea "on edge". South Korean officials are scheduled to visit the North on Tuesday. At the time, Kim said he would be willing to send a delegation to the Olympic Games being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. However, this tolerance might not continue once the Games are over.

A Pyeongchang press conference over the weekend featuring three South Korean Olympic volunteers turned into a debate that reflects the growing concerns among many in South Korea over efforts to accommodate the nuclear-armed North.

But the fascination with Hyon also stems from rumors that she was once Kim's girlfriend and that he'd had her publicly executed with a machine gun as punishment for making pornographic videos. (Korean ) "It's important to respect the South Korean people's right to know, but the media also has to refrain from subjective speculation about hidden agendas that could affect the Games". They did not talk to reporters. Since the North opened a tour zone at the scenic landscape in 1998, some 2 million South Koreans had visited until the fatal shooting.

Pyongyang's statement on Tuesday did not mention a parade, but it said that the North would "significantly mark" the new Army Building Day with "diverse events" every year.

Moon's conservative opponents are also critical of his Olympic embrace of the North. Hong Joon-pyo, the leader of the conservative Liberty Korea Party, said the Moon administration "is being dragged around by Kim Jong Un's peace offensive" that is aimed at weakening global sanctions imposed for its continued nuclear weapons development.

This amazement on North's very own "Spice Girl" continued when she arrived in Seoul, as she was boarding the train that would take her to Gangneung, where the games will be held - a scene that was televised nationwide.

"This team will enter the Olympic Stadium under the Korean unification flag". For his domestic audience, they read: "I have Korean unity and reunification on my radar and will not forget it despite being preoccupied by developing our nuclear programme, testing missiles, United Nations sanctions, USA threats, the warmonger Donald Trump, and so on".

"We will assist the government for inter-Korean cultural exchanges based on our accumulated know-how and capabilities in organizing oversea showcase events for K-pop singers", an official from the agency said.

A South Korean inspection team arrives at the Donghae Highway Transit Office at the border between South and North Korea on January 23, 2018. He was simply responding - albeit belatedly - to a speech given by the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, in June 2017 at the opening ceremony of the Taekwondo Word Championships in Muju, South Korea in which Moon explicitly proposed to send a unified Korean team to Pyeongchang to improve inter-Korean relations.

NHK, Japan's national broadcaster, cites multiple polls as saying 70% of South Koreans don't want a joint Korean women's hockey team at the PyeongChang Games.

It's likely that all this attention is exactly what North Korea was hoping for.

If South Korea makes the visit, it will be the first one since the Moon Administration took office last May.
