Pence to head US delegation for PyeongChang Winter Olympics

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un speaks during a New Year's Day speech in this

South Korea is reportedly considering joining its women's hockey team with North Korea after talks between the two nations this week led to the announcement that North Korea will send a delegation to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The prospects of resolving decades-old tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula remain deeply uncertain.

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

North Korea has yet to comment on the South's offer, which is in the spirit of the original deal and even goes beyond it.

Trump told Moon during the Tuesday exchange he'd consider engaging in dialogue with North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un "at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances", the readout said.

As a result of the talks Tuesday, NKorea will send a delegation to the Olympics being held in Pyeongchang this year. Having underestimated North Korea's nuclear capabilities and misjudged the pace at which it developed its missile technology, the USA will be more anxious about containing the missile programme.

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

The world can breathe just a little easier as geopolitical tensions in the Korean peninsula seem to have eased. He played down fears of war.

"You'll see that a lot with me", he said.

Pyongyang's sixth-ever nuclear test a year ago and a series of missile launches incurred bolstered global sanctions.

"I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks", Moon said at a news conference.

Moon is no stranger to lavishing Trump with obsequious praise.

"The two leaders underscored the importance of continuing the maximum pressure campaign against North Korea", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders added in a statement that confirmed a South Korea account of the phone call.

Also, North Korea re-opened the suspended inter-Korean communication hotline with South Korea, after it was closed down in February 2016.

Asked if he had spoken with the North Korea leader since his inauguration, Trump avoided giving a clear answer, saying, "I don't want to comment on it".

Resorting to force is widely viewed as very risky.
