North Korea defends military parade before Olympics

"We think the Olympics will go very nicely and after that, who knows". "They were here and I said "let's tell your story".

"We ran out of road", he said. But the intrigue around the 2018 games began months ago.

During the high-level inter-Korean talks in January, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) agreed to send its athletes and cheerleaders to the South Korea-hosted winter sports event, as well as a high-ranking delegation.

The duo, Ryom Tae Ok and Kim Ju Sik, is the focus of intense media attention as they were the only North Korean athletes who were initially qualified to compete in the Pyeongchang Games before their Olympic committee missed a confirmation deadline. It probably will come as a big threat to the North Korean regime. "These exercises ensure we are trained for combined joint operations".

Ji, a double amputee who fled North Korea on crutches, said he was "deeply moved" and "honoured" to be mentioned by the US President in his first State of the Union address.

USA officials have said the debate on military action has lost some momentum as a result of the intra-Korean talks, which Trump has called a "good thing" and credited to his tough stance.

"Nobody has the right to take issue" with the event, said Rodong Sinmun, the official daily of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party.

The South Korean president said he hoped to make the PyeongChang Winter Olympics an opportunity for the inter-Korean dialogue that would last after the Winter Olympics and contribute to peace on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea is usually extremely sensitive about outside criticism of its human rights situation. She received a silver medal for her performance in figure skating.
