It is important to shore up dialogue with South Korea says North Korea leader

Vastavam web: North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un said it is important to boost the “warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue” after meeting with the high-level delegation that returned to the North after their three-day visit in the South for the Winter Olympics, the North’s state media said on Tuesday.Kim Jong Un also expressed “satisfaction” over their visit and said efforts made by Seoul to prioritise their visit were “very impressive” including their “sincere efforts” for which he gave his gratitude, the Korean Central News Agency said.

Kim Yo Jong delivered a letter from her brother at a visit to the South’s presidential Blue House on Saturday, asking Moon to visit “at his earliest convenience” to which Moon replied both Koreas should try to make conditions that would make the visit possible.

Talk of an inter-Korean summit, which would be the first since 2007 if it happened, come after months of tension between Pyongyang, Seoul and Washington over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes. An exchange of fiery words between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump also ratcheted up unease on the Korean peninsula.
