US Vice President Mike Pence says he ignored Kim Jong Un's sister

US Vice President Mike Pence says he ignored Kim Jong Un's sister”

During an interview on Air Force Two returning from the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Pence told The Washington Post that the US and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had agreed on further engagement with North Korea.

"There is no daylight between the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear missile program", Pence said. Pence only stood when the US team entered the arena.

While attending, Pence refused to stand when South Korea entered the arena because they were joined with the North Korean athletes.

The world's largest economy is willing to talk with North Korean leadership even as it continues applying maximum pressure on the rogue state's economy, according to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence. "But if you want to talk, we'll talk".

"I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events", she said.

Kim Hyun-wook: So far the maximum pressure has worked a lot, there has been a tug of war between the United States and North Korea.

He said the United States and its allies would impose "steep and escalating costs" on Pyongyang until it takes "clear steps toward denuclearization".

North Korea has made clear that it does not intend to negotiate away its nuclear and missile programs in return for relief from worldwide sanctions.

The North Korean mission's statement calls the U.S.

Tensions have eased somewhat between the two Koreas with the North's surprise participation in the Winter Olympics now under way in PyeongChang.

Sputnik: Kim Jong-un's sister delivered a handwritten invitation to South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit Pyongyang, do you see that meeting happening? How much can they really accomplish without the US? And I think a very important mediator role of South Korea should be something that would work for the dialogue between the U.S. and North Korea.
