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 Korean President Moon Jae-in said the first talks with the North in two years were a good start. He said the next step was to get the North to talk nuclear disarmament.
North Korea made significant strides in the development of its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs in 2017. In a New Year's speech, the country's leader said it can now start focusing on mass production.
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.
