I probably have very good relationship with Kim Jong Un: Donald Trump

Despite Trump's threat of fire and fury and the United Nations series of economic sanctions, North Korea's Kim Jong Un has never backed down from his nuclear and missile tests, openly warning the U.S. its missiles can now reach any city on the USA mainland.

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-un", Trump told the Wall Street Journal during an interview that took place on January 7 and that went to press on January 11.

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued.

"I think we're going to have a long period of peace. I like it very much". South Korea, in contrast, is already within striking distance of the North's huge conventional, nuclear and suspected chemical and biological arsenal.

Marcotte made contact with the North Korean delegation to offer encouragement to the pair.

Upon being asked if he has spoken with the North Korean despot, the POTUS said, "I'm not saying I have or haven't". Western intelligence agencies say North Korea was responsible and the United States considers it a terrorist attack.

Hecker told the Times that North Korea needed "at least two more years and several more missile and nuclear tests" to flawless a weapon to threaten US cities.

Trump has also promised of no military action during "the talk", according to the South Korean government.

It remains unclear whether these disclosures by people close to the internal deliberations were simply psychological warfare aimed at sowing strategy-changing fear within the North Korean leadership or reflected Trump's serious intent.However, the administration's debate on whether to put greater emphasis on strike plans has slowed because of the North-South contacts and February's Winter Olympics to be hosted by South Korea.

North Korean officials met their southern counterparts on Tuesday for the first such talks in two years.

News of apparent active nuclear test site comes just days after North Korean officials met with South Korean officials for the first time in more than two years.

The list will likely include 10 athletes and 10 officialsThe number of the North Korean athletic delegation for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics appears likely to be around 20 members.

An Chan-Il, a defector researcher who runs the World Institute for North Korea Studies, said the cheerleaders are cherry-picked by the regime based on tough criteria. Diplomats report the beginnings of food shortages in North Korea, and China is sending some North Korean workers back home. To the contrary, it was part of an intentional campaign created to get North Korea to understand that Trump, unlike his predecessors, is willing to use force to stop Pyongyang from threatening American cities.

South Korea has also proposed a joint march of the two countries at the 2018 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony.

But, while the decision may help defuse nuclear tension with the West, in terms of sports, it is unlikely to bring the emergence of a hidden-away North Korea version of Shaun White or Yuzuru Hanyu. "It is very deplorable to see the U.S. politicians boasting of their diplomatic failure as 'diplomatic success,"' it said. "If North Korea engages in provocations again or does not show sincerity in resolving this issue, the global community will continue applying strong pressure and sanctions". Historically, North Korean figure skaters have seldom competed outside their country and, when they do, their talent and ability often comes as a big surprise.
