North Korea Holds Massive Military Parade Ahead Of 2018 Winter Olympics

North Korea Holds Massive Military Parade Ahead Of 2018 Winter Olympics”

"And we will continue to isolate North Korea until it abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile program once and for all", Pence said after meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence vowed tough new sanctions against North Korea and called it the world's most tyrannical regime on Wednesday, two days before he is due to attend the Winter Olympics, along with two of the North's most senior officials.

A day before the Winter Olympics begin in South Korea, North Korea went ahead with a military parade to celebrate its official military foundation day.

South Korean media had speculated North Korea would create another sanctions-related headache by insisting on sending its senior officials via the US -boycotted Air Koryo.

He has a right to be upset, and those such as Chris Sutton who have dubbed him a "big baby" are being rather one-eyed in their criticism.

Welcoming Pence to the presidential Blue House, Moon took the opportunity to highlight the visit of the North Korean officials to the games, calling them "Olympic Games of peace".

On Wednesday, the North announced that Kim Yo Jong, the sister of dictator Kim Jong Un, would attend the games, joining the country's 90-year-old nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam.

It did not say a word when North Korea unilaterally made a decision to send its Samjiyon Orchestra by ship instead of via the land route as agreed, even though it must realize that North Korea was testing the waters to see how far Seoul is willing to bend its own sanctions. "Those who dare raise their voices in dissent are imprisoned, tortured and even murdered, and their children and grandchildren are routinely punished for their family's sins against the state". Seoul sees the moves as a chance to ease the tensions with their rivals to the North and possibly rein in Kim Jong Un's nuclear and missile programs.

She will be the first member of the Kim family to cross the border into the South. Kim Yo Jong is a propaganda official and was blacklisted past year by the U.S. Treasury Department over alleged human rights abuses and censorship.

Mets, Todd Frazier agree to two-year deal
Frazier would finish the 2017 season batting.213 with 26 home runs, and 77 runs batted in between both the White Sox and Yankees . The 31-year-old had signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the White Sox before they traded him to the Yankees.

Japan has historically strained ties with both North and South Korea, having occupied the peninsula for decades leading up to World War Two.

South Korea is deciding whether to accept North Korea's request that it provide fuel for the ferry that transported the artists.

Abe echoed Pence's comments, urging countries "not to be lured by the charm offensive of North Korea". In Japan, Pence watched Japanese troops demonstrate the simulated deployment of Japan's surface-to-air missile defense system, which would attempt to intercept a North Korean missile.

A year ago he said a third country, such as Norway, should try to mediate the dispute between North Korea and Washington, to cool a situation that had become "too hot" and posed the risk of nuclear devastation. Abe added that the US and Japan are "100 percent on the same page" on North Korean policy.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel hopes Riyad Mahrez can clear his head
Yet Mahrez has been left hurt by his club's refusal to sell to City, with whom he would have likely won a second league title. In the English top-flight, Coutinho has scored 41 goals in 152 appearances, good for a goal every 3.7 games.

"US officials including the defense secretary and the Central Intelligence Agency director repeatedly talked about DPRK nuclear and missile threat to justify their argument for a military option and a new concept of a so-called "bloody nose", a limited preemptive strike on the DPRK is under consideration within the United States administration", Ju said.
