Pence says U.S. is willing to have talks with North Korea

The 2018 Winter Olympic Games open on 9 February

Scarborough was talking to Richard Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, about the media's reaction to Kim Yo Jong's trip to South Korea for the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Pence and the US delegation in Pyeongchang, South Korea, did not meet with North Korean officials during the trip, despite the vice president not ruling out the possibility last week.

"Say what you will about the brutal North Korean dictatorship, at least they are #RESISTING Trump!"

Kim Yo Jong's visit marked the first time since the two countries split after World War II that a member of the ruling Kim family visited the South.

However, South Korea's main opposition party warned that any talks between the two Koreas where the scrapping of North Korea's nuclear program was not a precondition would only "benefit the enemy". The possible response to this can well be imagined.

Her country is subject to a raft of sanctions from the United States, the UN and the European Union over its weapons programmes and Japan has said it remains sceptical about the "charm offensive". "Kim Jong Un is responsible for human rights violations and assassination of his own half-brother", Seong Ho told The Daily Caller exclusively.

Mr Moon welcomed Mr Pence's remarks during a meeting with Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis later Tuesday in Seoul, a presidential office spokesman said.

With the players warming up on the ice, fans around the cheerleaders' section turned their attention to the North Koreans instead, taking photos and selfies with them in the background.

He acknowledged concerns over the nuclear-armed North's participation in the South's Games.

Howard had caused a commotion during the February 9 opening ceremony when he and a person dressed as U.S. President Donald Trump were swiftly shown out of the stadium by security staff. While Kim Eun Ho ended up being disqualified from the race, his loss highlighted a moment that may be worth more than any Olympic gold.

At the same time, Washington has repeatedly held out the prospect of talks with North Korea, but stressed that they must have the ultimate aim of it giving up its weapons me, something Pyongyang has repeatedly rejected.
