North Korea calls for unification of Korean Peninsula

North Korea calls for unification of Korean Peninsula

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that through the agency's efforts, the USA government has improved its ability to interdict shipments into North Korea.

South Korea has sent a group of officials to North Korea to inspect preparations for a joint cultural event at the North's scenic Diamond Mountain and a practice session for the countries' non-Olympic skiers at the North's Masik ski resort the Koreas plan to hold before the start of the Olympics. This team of twelve players would be a part of the twenty three player team which will represent Korea according to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

President Moon Jae-in and Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Do Jong-hwan gives words of encouragement to members of South Korea's women's ice hockey team to the PyeongChang Olympiad at a rink in Jincheon, Chungcheongbuk-do, on January 17.

It urged "all Koreans at home and abroad" to "promote contact, travel, cooperation between North and South Korea". The statement said Koreans should pursue unification without the interference of foreign countries, specifically the United States.

The North raised the possibility Tuesday when it announced that it's changing the date of a national holiday honoring its army to February 8, the day before the Winter Games begin in South Korea.

What happens and ahead and whether this will prove as a successful step towards unification will remain a matter of speculation for a while.

The officials first visited Inje, about 50 kilometers from Pyeongchang, to inspect a hotel that will likely be used by a North Korean cheering squad.

The source noted that four out of six of North Korea's nuclear weapons tests, and missile tests conducted on almost 20 occasions, have taken place during Kim Jong Un's leadership.

North Korea has called for unification with South Korea - vowing to "smash" all challenges to achieving the "breakthrough". -South Korea war games that have raised the ire of Pyongyang in the past.

The PyeongChang Olympics will be an event armed with advanced ICT with a focus on five areas: 5G telecom network KT will demonstrate for the first time in the world; ultra high definition (UHD) TV; smart AI; and exciting virtual reality. Murray, who examined the North Koreans first hand during an event in Gangneung a year ago, has identified five players as memorable, but among them, only forwards Jong Su Hyon and Kim Hyang Mi made the trip for the Olympics.

The comments came after China's US ambassador told USA TODAY on Tuesday that his country would support Korean reunification if it's the will of the people there and if it came about through peaceful means that did not result in chaos or a threat to China's national security.
