Pyongyang Cozies Up to Seoul, US May Be Ready to Negotiate
The games continue. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un praised South Korea for welcoming his delegation to the Winter Olympics, even after his nuclear grandstanding has escalated tensions with President Trump and set the world on edge in recent months. Kim, who some felt used the Games as propaganda for his regime, called for further warming of relations with Seoul. Meanwhile, U.S. officials said tactics toward North Korea are shifting, with American leaders potentially ready for “talks about talks” with Pyongyang, even if it hasn’t agreed to denuclearize.
