US, Korea to Postpone War Games

North Korea claims it has developed a hydrogen bomb which can be loaded into a ballistic missile and released images of Kim Jong Un inspecting the device at an undisclosed location

They come just one month before the February 9 opening ceremony for the Winter Games.

North Korea's Olympic representative said on Saturday the reclusive nation was "likely to participate" in next month's Winter Games in South Korea, Kyodo news agency reported, in the latest sign of a thaw in tensions on the peninsula.

After Kim asserted that he had a nuclear button at the ready, Trump last week dismissed the taunt by saying in a tweet that the USA button at his disposal was bigger and more powerful.

Pompeo said USA intelligence had provided an understanding of North Korea's capabilities and intent, and got the pace of the nuclear program "mostly right".

"Sure, I always believe in talking", Mr Trump said at a televised press conference from Camp David on Saturday, while stressing that the United States maintained a very firm stance and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "knows I'm not messing around".

Trump's openness to talks recalled his more accommodating approach during the 2016 campaign, when he said he could negotiate with Kim over a hamburger. "At the appropriate time, we'll get involved".

The latest round of sanctions passed in December bans the supply of almost 75 per cent of refined oil products to North Korea, puts a cap on crude deliveries and orders all North Korean nationals working overseas to be sent back by the end of 2019.

West Ham boss Moyes sends worrying message to the fans
West Ham are prepared to listen to offers for Javier Hernandez just six months after they bought him for £16million. That apart though, a lot about this window is an unwelcome distraction .

Moon campaigned on greater engagement with North Korea and has since his May election affirmed his commitment to reunification through dialogue.

The US President also told reporters that Mr Kim - who has previously threatened the US with a nuclear attack - knows he is not "messing around". The Trump administration had said that Kim must at least pause his nuclear weapons program before talks would be considered.

After December 2015, this will be the first such high-level direct contact between the two Koreas, which are technically in a state of war as the 1950-53 conflict did not end in a peace treaty. North Korea has yet to respond to the South Korean proposal, leaving some uncertainty as to the agenda and the venue of the talks. At Moon's request, Trump delayed annual joint US-South Korean military exercises-long a source of consternation to the North-until after the Paralympic Games conclude on 18 March.

But the new year has witnessed a marked softening of tone.

KFC U.K. and Ireland took to Twitter to go against the home of the Big Mac, writing on Wednesday: "McDonald's leader Ronald just stated he has a 'burger on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy!"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe-another key player in the US-led pressure campaign against Kim-also expressed caution about the detente in an interview broadcast Sunday by Japan's NHK network. -South Korea military exercises.
