Trump Says He'd Be Open to Talks with Kim Jong Un

Haley points to a stop to testing as well as discussion about banning the North's nuclear weapons.

This latest thaw was initiated when, in a New Year's speech, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he was willing to have dialogue with South Korea and could send representatives to the upcoming Winter Olympics.

Citing a South Korean government source, Yonhap said the government's position is not aimed at "renegotiation or scrapping" the agreement, which was meant to "finally and irreversibly" solve the issue when it was adopted in December 2015.

In that same speech, Kim added that North Korea would continue "mass producing" nuclear weapons, which prompted a response from Trump in which he mocked Kim by stating that the USA nuclear button was "much bigger & more powerful", and that his button "works". The two Koreas have had little interaction in sporting events after inter-Korean relations deteriorated in 2008.

According to Haley, combating North Korea's one-sided bargaining tactics will be the first step in achieving any progress.

Baik also declined to elaborate when asked whether Seoul could raise North Korea's 2010 sinking of a South Korean warship during Tuesday's meeting. South Korean President Moon Jae-in has expressed openness to their participation, and President of the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games Lee Hee-beom has proposed powerful exhibitions of solidarity should North Korea be allowed to compete, suggesting the two Koreas march under the same flag in the opening ceremony and even form joint figure skating and ice skating teams.

"Look, right now they're talking Olympics".

Analysts say tensions could flare again after the Olympics, with US and South Korean troops carrying out their delayed drills, and North Korea likely responding with new weapons tests.

The drills' suspension is something that South Korea can not accept in consideration of its relations with the USA, its main ally, which is seeking increased pressure and sanctions on the North. But Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has insisted the delay is a practical necessity to accommodate the Olympics, not a political gesture.

"I would love to see them take it beyond the Olympics", he said.

The North Korean delegation is headed by Ri Son Gwon, a hardliner who heads a government agency that handles relations with South Korea.
