Pence announces 'toughest' U.S. sanctions on North Korea

After all, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un certainly wasn't motivated by a genuine New Year's resolution when he called for better relations with South Korea on January 1.

It will be the first time a member of the ruling Kim family has visited South Korea.

However, experts say it is unlikely to have any impact on the North's nuclear ambitions.

K-pop boy band EXO and Korean singer, songwriter and rapper CL, are set to perform during the closing ceremony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea later this month.

The demilitarized zone (DMZ) offers visitors coming to South Korea for the Winter Olympics a surreal mix of doomsday military installations and tourist attractions, where gift shops and tour buses mix with razor wire, land mines and massive "rock drops" rigged with explosives to block roads for invading North Korean armies.

NBC's primetime coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics begins on February 8, 2018, with the Opening Ceremony to follow on February 9, 2018. Many of them are half-siblings, but Kim Jong Un and Kim Yo Jong have the same mother, Ko Yong Hui.

"I'm announcing today that the United States of America will soon unveil the toughest and most aggressive round of economic sanctions on North Korea ever", he said. He also said Washington may see Kim Yo Jong as an avenue to deliver messages to Kim Jong Un. During the April parade, North Korea displayed a new type of missile that US intelligence labeled as the KN-17 and assessed as a single-stage anti-ship missile. "Kim Jong-chol, the leader's older brother, went out of the public eye after his younger brother took over the leadership". Others in the group include Ri Son-gwon, chair of North Korea's Committee for PeacefulReunification, and Choe Hwi, head of the National Sports Guidance Committee. Kim claimed another record, sending an ICBM 2,800 miles into the sky, which translates into a potential range of 8,000 miles, more than enough to hit anywhere in the continental United States. They had a half brother, Kim Jong Nam, who was murdered past year at a Malaysian airport.

The Washington Post's Anna Fifield wrote that the visiting Samjiyon Orchestra - which was created in 2009 on the orders of the late leader Kim Jong Il - is made up of younger musicians known for their flashy attire and striking stage presence. On Friday, before he attends the Olympic opening ceremony, he will visit a memorial for 46 South Korean sailors killed in 2010 in the sinking of a warship that Seoul blamed on a North Korean torpedo attack.

Kim Jong Un has not renounced his pursuit of nuclear weapons, indeed he is parading intercontinental ballistic missiles down the streets of Pyongyang and Donald Trump continues to insist that the United States will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea.
