North Korea says USA is considering attacking them

South Korea presented on Wednesday a request to the council's sanctions committee for an exemption to the travel ban imposed on Choe Hwi, chairman of North Korea's National Sports Guidance Committee.

Trump has ordered Pentagon and White House officials to begin planning a military parade in Washington similar to the Bastille Day parade he saw in Paris in July, the Washington Post said.

Many speculate Yo-jong may be carrying a message from the North Korean leader himself.

Aides say the vice president is advancing a counter message, using the games as an opportunity for the South and the broader worldwide community to exert what President Donald Trump has termed "maximum pressure" against the North.

US disarmament ambassador Robert Wood told the Geneva forum that North Korea was only months away from being able to hit American territory with a nuclear weapon and must be disarmed.

North Korea held a massive military parade in April a year ago to celebrate the 105th birth anniversary of the nation's founding president, Kim Il-sung.

The North, however, has agreed with South Korea to send 22 athletes and a 230-strong cheering squad to the Winter Games starting on Friday.

Abe said before leaving for the Olympics he wanted to convey to the world that cooperation among the United States, Japan and South Korea on the North Korean threat "will not waver".

Penn State women's basketball's late rally falls short against Iowa
The class is heavier on defense than offense, which is quite a thing to say about a class that has two five-star skill players. The nastiness along the defensive line, especially along the interior, likely won't come right away from this class.

The Mangyongbong 92 also carried hundreds of supporters to the South Korean port of Busan on its last visit in 2002.

The 28-year-old sister of the North Korean leader will be the first member of the Kim family to cross the border into the South. Kim Yo Jong is a propaganda official blacklisted last year by the U.S. Treasury Department over alleged human rights abuses and censorship.

Administration officials said they had long expected the North would seek to use the Olympics, taking place just 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the heavily-mined Demilitarized Zone dividing the Koreas, as an opportunity to put a softer face on the regime, and painted Pence's visit as a counterbalance to those efforts. "The U.S. intends to make North Korea pay for what it did".

Since the establishment of the China-South Korea diplomatic ties in 1992, their bilateral relationship has developed in an all-round manner, Han said.

The North's state media also showed what appeared to be intercontinental ballistic missiles on launchers as thousands of North Koreans filled Kim Il Sung Square, named after Kim Jong Un's grandfather.

Moon, a liberal whose presidential win in May previous year ended a decade of conservative rule in Seoul, has always expressed a willingness to reach out to the North.

South Korea has yet to announce a confirmed schedule for the North Korean delegates aside of their participation in the opening ceremony and Saturday's luncheon with Moon. Matsegora said that Russian authorities do not forcefully deport North Koreans who do not want to return.

North Korea set up the Korean People's Army (KPA) on February 8, 1948, and celebrated the date as the founding anniversary until 1977.
