Koreas try out Olympic diplomacy at North Korean ski resort

Koreas try out Olympic diplomacy at North Korean ski resort

Speaking on his flight before landing at Pearl Harbor, Mattis also noted the US was ready to "fight tonight" alongside South Korea, if attacked by the North.

Any North Korean attack would be "severely rebuffed", Mattis added. South Korean military officials also have said the drills would resume but it's too soon to disclose the exact date and size. While sports can act as a diplomatic catalyst, "they cannot alter the fundamental political calculus", Kim Sung Han, the former senior South Korean diplomat, said.

"Under any circumstances, talks should be pursued. the Germans also always placed importance on talks (before their reunification) and made consistent efforts to that end", he said through his South Korean fiancé and interpreter Kim So-yeon.

On Friday, a researcher from North Korea's Social Science Institute issued a warning in the country's Rodong Sinmun newspaper that inter-Korean talks have not lowered the threat of a nuclear war on the peninsula.

The Masikryong Ski Resort, where South and North Korean skiers will participate in a two day joint training, is pictured on January 24. While South and North Korea are now looking at several dates, the event will be reportedly held on the afternoon of February 4.

His trip to Seoul came as South and North Korea resumed high-level talks earlier this month, for the first time in more than two years, at the truce village of Panmunjom, to discuss the North's participation in the February 9-25 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The joint Korean women's ice hockey team, assembled for the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics, had their first practice session together Sunday. "The global pressure campaign must continue".

The Trump administration has repeatedly said all options are on the table when dealing with the rogue state.

The Kremlin also denied reports saying "Russia is a responsible member of the global community and is committed to worldwide rules and sanctions", on Friday.

"It is a realistic guess that a vicious circle of repeated provocations and sanctions could come back soon", he said. It test-fired three intercontinental ballistic missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test a year ago.

The researcher later criticized North Korean crisis talks that Canada and the USA held in Vancouver on January 16 and deemed the event as evidence that the Land of the Free is trying to galvanize opposition to the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "There is not a peace treaty".

He renewed that message as he met South Korean Minister of Defence Song Young-moo at the U.S. Pacific Command headquarters in Hawaii.
