Trump says U.S. could 'conceivably' re-enter Paris Climate deal

If this were any other country, that might be an issue, but it's hard to imagine a late registration would keep these North Korean athletes from competing. "They have to tell us as much".

People were anxious that this kind of global concentration on South Korea might provoke the North Koreans into some kind of incident.

However, Pyongyang said it would not discuss its nuclear weapons with Seoul because they were only aimed at the United States, not its "brethren" in South Korea, nor Russian Federation or China, showing that a diplomatic breakthrough remained far off.

Then on Saturday at Camp David, the President said he would "absolutely" be willing to talk to Kim by phone.

The state department said the USA remained in close consultations with South Korean officials who would ensure the North's participation in the Winter Olympics did not violate United Nations sanctions.

"President Trump expressed his openness to holding talks between the United States and North Korea at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances", the White House statement said.

Rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, which conducted its largest nuclear test in September and fired off a powerful ICBM in late November, have raised concerns worldwide. Soaring tensions could meanwhile disrupt the Games, which represent the South's most prominent moment on the global stage since Seoul staged the Summer Olympics in 1988. The U.S. has also imposed sanctions on the North's flag carrier, Air Koryo, so using Northern air routes would be hard. It risks potentially devastating retaliation not only for South Koreans, and very possibly Japanese citizens, but also large numbers of U.S. troops and civilians in the South. "And I know more about wedges than any human being that's lived". And Pyongyang may hope South Korea could resume desperately needed economic aid at some point.

"In 2018, the goal of the government and I is to preserve the everyday lives of citizens and to better them".

Marcotte, who also coaches a team from South Korea, first spoke with Ryom and Kim early past year at the Asian Winter Games in Japan, congratulating them on their performance and improvement.

Trump himself took credit for the renewed contacts between the ROK and North Korea at Camp David. North Korea remains the most immediate reason to fear this reckless president.Even as Korean officials were meeting in the border "truce village" of Panmunjom, there were reports of administration interest in limited strikes, created to stop Pyongyang by giving it a "bloody nose" and make it think again.

The invite to North Korea to participate in the Olympics has already required some diplomatic and internal Olympic Committee (IOC) gymnastics to make the idea reality.

The rare high-level talks come amid the increasing tension between the two countries as South Korea seized a Hong Kong-flagged oil tanker returning after allegedly transferring oil to North Korea a few days ago. And Trump still seems committed to unpredictability, meaning that the Olympics may represent a pause rather than fundamental easing of the crisis.
