North Korea Just Called for Unification with South Korea

Why everybody seems to be crying in lots of photos with Kim Jong-un

The continuing efforts to make sure North Korea is not successful in further developing its missile and nuclear weapons program.

Since then, the two sides have re-opened dormant hotlines, met several times for talks at the border, and even sent delegations to visit the other in preparation for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Their coach and two assistants will accompany them to the South on Thursday, the notice said.

According to the source, who said he was "well-acquainted" with the North Korean elite, the lack of funding is no secret and is discussed amongst the top executives of government.

State media issued the warning amid fears Kim Jong-un is plotting a major military parade for February 8 - just a day before South Korea holds the opening ceremony for its Winter Olympic Games.

The South Korean government has rejected criticism that the games had been hijacked by North Korea, saying the event will help defuse tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programme.

The new measures officially sanction the North Korea-flagged Kum Un San, five other vessels, nine entities and 16 other businessmen and public officials, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced on Wednesday.

The minister said what's important is ensuring that the current mood for dialogue between the two Koreas continues after the Olympics, adding that talks between Pyongyang and Washington could provide a breakthrough.

Two anonymous Chinese sources with connections to North Korea's ruling elite, reportedly told the newspaper that Kim had almost exhausted the financial handout inherited from his father.

"But regardless whether I visit North Korea, China's commitment to safeguarding peace and stability and realizing denuclearization on the peninsula will never change", he added.

North and South Korea remain technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty. The increased United States attention comes as the North has stepped up its tempo of nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

President Moon Jae-in's approval rating dropped to its lowest level in four months.

North Korea has said that the "dark vortex of nuclear war" is hanging over the region because of United States "military tensions".

Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo has said North Korea is "a handful of months" away from being able to make a nuclear attack on the United States.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, joint chiefs of staff director, said suspending drills that occur regularly are not an option. China had agreed to halt fuel shipments as part of an global effort to pressure Pyongyang to forfeit its nuclear weapons and long-range missiles program.
