As the two Koreas mark the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the war, hope for a lasting peace remains frail.
As North and South Korea engage in talks, a group of 20 countries has said Kim Jong Un needs to be forced to the negotiating table. Pyongyang has said it would send a cheer squad to next month's Winter Olympics.
South and North Korea have agreed that Pyongyang will send a 140-strong orchestra to perform at next month's Winter Olympics. The agreement has come as the two sides continue to hold rare working-level talks.
North and South Korea have agreed to make a joint entrance under a unified Korean peninsula flag at the opening ceremony of the upcoming Winter Olympics. They will also send a combined women's ice hockey team.
