North Korea requires unity with South as hockey…

Dressed in white-and-red winter parkas emblazoned with the North Korean flag, the ice hockey players arrived on Thursday to South Korea's athletes' village in Jincheon, 56 miles south of Seoul.

NPR's Bill Chappell says, "South Korea's athletes have previously marched alongside their North Korean counterparts at several Olympics, including the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics in Sydney and Athens, respectively, as well as the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin". Instead of putting the North Korean hockey players into training right away, Murray gave them the afternoon to rest and held an orientation that evening to introduce the exact schedule and the plans for the unified team. "We could fight tonight, shoulder to shoulder with the South Koreans, if they're attacked", Mattis said.

North Korea may stage an "intimidating" military parade the day before the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, Seoul says, adding that the event could involve large-scale forces and nearly all of Pyongyang's weapons. In 1948, South Korea declared independence, sparking a North Korean invasion in 1950 and the onset of the Korean War.

This will be the first time that the two Koreas field a joint team at a multi-sport competition. It test-fired three intercontinental ballistic missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test previous year. "They need to be serious about denuclearization and we're not seeing that they are serious about denuclearization". But, the United States and South Korea have repeatedly denied those accusations and insisted that these exercises are meant to enhance the combat readiness of their troops.

President Moon Jae-in's approval rating dropped to its lowest level in four months.

It also urged China and Russia, North Korea's main allies, to expel North Koreans raising funds for the programmes.

A new report on North Korean sanctions like this must be submitted to Congress at this same time for the next five years.

Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo has said North Korea is "a handful of months" away from being able to make a nuclear attack on the United States.

"I think, with the new administration, we have a far more clear-eyed assessment of our adversaries and a willingness to exercise USA force-whether economic force, whether diplomatic force", Cruz said.

She characterized meetings with Chinese officials in Beijing as productive but also stressed that China's efforts were "critical" to maximizing pressure on Pyongyang.

The proposal to delay the exercise was based on the "spirit of the Olympic Games", Foreign Minister Kang said, declining to elaborate on whether the South would resume the drills after the event.
