"Kim Jong-un is using this kind of sports festival as a way of making him stronger, and that is very risky and disrespectful to all those who have fought for authentic peace for so long".

The official disputed Trump's claim in his address that the United States had "made incredible progress and achieved extraordinary success" over the a year ago, calling it "the height of Trump-style arrogance, arbitrariness and self-conceit".

"At every opportunity, the [vice president] will point out the reality of the oppression in North Korea by a regime that has enslaved its people", the aide added.

USA officials have been issuing mixed messages throughout January surrounding ongoing inter-Korean talks and whether or not they can snowball into broader negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington on the topic of denuclearization.

Trump also said that the danger imposed by North Korea will reach its maximum "very soon", and the reclusive country must be dealt with now, because "past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation".

A high-ranking North Korean representative is expected to head a delegation to Seoul, the South's Unification Ministry has said.

Ri warned that the USA military actions are aimed "to provoke a nuclear war, which will undermine the improvement of inter-Korean relations and the easing of tensions".

The spokesman added: "If Trump does not get rid of his anachronistic and dogmatic way of thinking, it will only bring about the effect of further endangering security and future of the United States".

South Korea reportedly tries to make contact with the North at least once a day.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will ask South Korean President Moon Jae-in for support in evacuating Japanese citizens if a contingency breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, government sources said.

A nuclear test would reassert North Korea's nuclear capabilities and help it push for recognition as a nuclear power, he said.

Some experts say North Korea may want to use improved ties with the South as a way to weaken USA -led global sanctions.

German automakers test toxic exhaust fumes on caged monkeys
It sounds absurd, like something from a Cold War spy thriller, but unfortunately for VW (and the monkeys involved), it's all true. Volkswagen admitted that 11 million of its vehicles were equipped with software that was used to cheat on emissions tests.

While relations between North and South Korea have warmed in recent weeks, Vice President Pence is expected to push back against any pro-North Korean media narrative when he leads the USA delegation to the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, this week.
