Trump Says Willing To Talk To North Korean Leader, With Conditions

North Korea agreed to diplomatic talks with South Korea for the first time in over 2 years

"We won't take any of the talks seriously if they don't do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea", she said Tuesday.

Concerns over North Korea have overshadowed the Winter Games, which Seoul and the organizers have proclaimed a "peace Olympics", urging Pyongyang to participate, unlike the 1988 Summer Olympics in the South, which it boycotted.

Both sides appear to hope that the Olympics can be a platform for improving relations between the neighbors.

Trump, however, stressed that the talk could take place under the right conditions, saying North Korean leader Kim jong-un knows that he is "not messing around" in his pledge to address the North's military threat against the USA and its allies.

Two North Korea athletes, the figure skaters Ryom Tae-Ok and Kim Ju-sik, have qualified for the Games but missed the registration deadline, CNN reported. They captured a bronze medal last February at the Asian Winter Games in Japan. "We're very firm", Trump said.

South Korea's President Moon has been very eager to engage diplomatically with the North since last year's election, and it's likely that he made efforts to ensure that such concessions on drills were made, whatever pretext the USA wants to use. "I want to recognise that change", Abe said in a recorded interview aired on Sunday on national broadcaster NHK.

The remarks were seen as way to placate conservatives in South Korea, who are skeptical of talks with the North.

To reduce the risk of upsetting Pyongyang, South Korea and the United States agreed Thursday to put off joint military drills until after the Winter Paralympics in March.

Moon's statement also revealed that Trump said he would send a senior delegation, including his family members, to the Pyeongchang games.

This output has contributed to three successive defeats and five games without a win in all competitions. Their run of 16 points from the last seven league fixtures is second only to leaders Manchester City.

U.S. officials aren't clear if they want the South Koreans to engage in such talks, and have been quick to insist that their decision to postpone the drills was purely a logistics move, and not meant to facilitate any talks. "At the appropriate time, we'll get involved".

Speaking at the presidential retreat Camp David, Trump said he is willing to speak with Kim, but not without preconditions.

Trump said he is even open to having a telephone conversation with Kim if it can help ease tensions in the Korean peninsula, which has been witnessing a high-decibel war of words in recent months.

Foreign policy experts, including some Republicans, have criticized Trump's comments as reckless, but Haley said they were necessary. They have to stop testing.

The prospect of direct talks, however, ultimately rests on how serious North Korea is about denuclearization efforts, Kim added, noting that the dialogue is only possible if North Korea accepts the allies' decision to postpone the joint military drill as a condition for talks.

The last high-level talks between the two countries took place in a deputy ministerial meeting in December 2015, at the jointly-run Kaesong industrial zone in North Korea.

Also at stake are the costs of accommodations and other expenses.

"It's an indication the pressure campaign is causing the leadership, the regime in North Korea, to begin to think about 'this can't go on forever, '" he was quoted as saying.
