A diplomatic source said, "President Moon Jae-in is anxious about the recent impasse with North Korea" and voiced these concerns over tea with his aides before leaving on his current overseas trip.

"There was under-the-table contact before and after the North-U.S. high-level talks planned for November 8 in NY", an official familiar with the North-U.S. talks told the JoongAng Ilbo. Moreover, this is not the first time that Japan has renounced the ban in the name of sport.

Pence welcomed "tremendous progress" in bilateral negotiations so far - North Korea's stoppage of missile testing and the return of US hostages as well as the possible remains of American service members from the Korean War.

A litter of puppies was born earlier this month by a hunting dog given to South Korean President Moon Jae-in by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and the first photos of the dogs were shared by the South's presidential Blue House on Sunday (Nov 25).

But Washington has been adamant that the North must reach a certain level of denuclearization before it offers such incentives.

Earlier news reports suggested Pompeo may meet his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong-chol, as early as this week. His Democratic Party has always been associated with the so-called Sunshine Policy aimed at transforming North Korea into a cheap labour platform for South Korean conglomerates.

She also addressed the fact that Biegun has not yet held a meeting with the North.

"Have we not said the goal was to declare an end of the war before the year's end?" Do more need to take place?

North Korea continued to criticize South Korea and the US on Tuesday for taking part in a United Nations resolution condemning its human rights violations. -North Korean dialogue and North-South rapprochement efforts could cause "everything to go down the drain".
