[PyeongChang 2018] S. Korea 'carefully' mulling timing of offering talks with NK

After the Olympics, inter-Korean ties could become frosty again because North Korea has made it clear that it has no intention of accepting global calls for nuclear disarmament and instead wants to bolster its weapons arsenal in the face of what it calls increasing USA threats.

"This is reality, not a threat", Mr Kim said during a televised New Year's Day speech.

Kim said he would consider sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February. "Officials from the two Koreas may urgently meet to discuss the possibility", Kim said.

"The improvement of relations between North and South Korea can not go separately with resolving North Korea's nuclear program, so the foreign ministry should coordinate closely with allies and the global community regarding this", Moon said in opening remarks at a cabinet meeting.

Kim's customary New Year's speech is closely watched for indications of the policy direction the unpredictable and reclusive leader is likely to pursue in the coming year.

He warned that Iran will use its right to reciprocate the enemies' hostile moves in a way that they will regret their deeds. Trump and Nauert had tweeted in support of the recent economic protests in a number of Iranian towns.

North Korea previous year conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test and test-launched three intercontinental ballistic missiles as part of its push to possess a nuclear missile capable of reaching anywhere in the United States.

The Peace House is a building in Panmunjom controlled by South Korea.

Asked to comment on Kim's speech, U.S. President Donald Trump said: "We'll see, we'll see", as he walked into a New Year's Eve celebration at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

The minister said communication channels between the two Koreas in Panmunjom should be restored immediately to hold the inter-Korean, inter-governmental talks, suggesting to discuss details on the January 9 dialogue, such as setting agenda and forming delegations through the restored communication channels.

On Sunday, South Korea said it would impose new unilateral sanctions on 20 institutions and a dozen individuals in North Korea, barring any financial transactions between those sanctioned and any South Koreans.

"He wants to convince the global community that his nuclear weapons are purely for self-defense and wants to have a negotiated solution with the United States on the basis that he gets to keep its nuclear deterrent capability, Zhao said".

After North Korea tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in November, which it said was capable of delivering a warhead to anywhere in the United States, Kim declared his nuclear force complete.

North Korea hasn't immediately reacted. "The U.S. can never start a war against myself and our nation now".

The tensions around North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons program persist due to the repeated nuclear tests and missile launches carried out by Pyongyang in violation of the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
