Russian President Vladimir Putin says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "won this round" in the latest standoff with the United States and South Korea over his nuclear and ballistic-missile programs. Per the State Department, there are no plans for the U.S.to meet with North Korean officials over the course of the games.

SEOUL-Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday welcomed recent progress in inter-Korean talks during a telephone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the South's Blue House said in a statement. The talks took place against a backdrop of increasingly strict USA -led sanctions and bellicose rhetoric directed against the North, framed by the December 22 UN Security Council sanctions and a barrage of aggressive tweets from President Trump.

After months of soaring tensions, North Korea agreed this week to send athletes to the Winter Olympics in South Korea, in what was seen as a potential sign of a cooling-off period. "I just don't want to comment", Trump said.

But Moon signaled Wednesday that he remains united with the U.S.by agreeing with Trump's own assessment for why the talks happened.

RB Leipzig insist Naby Keita will not join Liverpool in January
The Brazilian directly contributed towards 20 goals in as many appearances, and his influence was nearly unrivalled in the squad. In the 13 league games since then, Liverpool has won nine and drawn the other four.


The relationship between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has featured persistent threats and personal attacks over the course of the past year as North Korea has continued to engage in missile tests. Both the sides agreed to resolve problems between them through dialogue. The North and South agreed to continue discussing ways to reduce tensions, which have risen as North Korea has sped toward the development of a missile-born nuclear weapon that can reach USA soil. "I think a certain level of success must be guaranteed", Moon said. The White House's readout of the call did not include the promise, but Trump later discussed the conversation with reporters at the White House.

Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Trump's cabinet was not united in what approach the us should take toward North Korea.

Russian Federation and North Korea share part of their border and maintain somewhat cordial relations. The US president denied that delaying military exercises on the Korean Peninsula for the Olympics sends the wrong message to the North Koreans, that he is in some way bending to them.
