North Korea plans military parade on eve of the Olympics, diplomats say

Things seem to be softening a bit now that North and South Korea have agreed to march as a unified team at the upcoming Pyeongchang Olympics Opening Ceremony, but Kelly said the nuclear issue still needs to be resolved.

Trump's tweet on North and South Korea comes amidst news reports that the two neighbours tested a special hotline in nearly two years.

The art performances, if held, would mark the first North Korean performances in South Korea since 2002, when Pyongyang sent a cohort of 30 singers and dancers from several music and performance groups to Seoul for a joint event, Yonhap said.

The decision to keep up with military threats comes the same day as Donald Trump expressed doubt that the intra-Korean talks will lead to "anything meaningful." .

Reuters reported in late December that Russian tankers had supplied fuel to North Korea by transferring cargo at sea, which is considered to be a violation of sanctions.

Uniting athletes from South Korea and North Korea at the Pyeongchang Games next month offers hope of an Olympic victory for all parties.

On Saturday, the International Olympic Committee will host a meeting in Lausanne to finesse the details of a peace-making breakthrough following months of rising tensions fueled by North Korea's missile-testing program.

Trump said "I'd sit down, but I'm not sure that sitting down will solve the problem". The North claimed in November that it had the continental USA within range.

"It is time to talk, but they have to take the step to say they want to talk". "And they get closer every day".

He went on: "They're not there yet, but they're close".
