North Korea cancels cultural event with South over 'media bias'

North Korea was somewhat of an outlier on the list, which, aside from Venezuela included only Muslim-majority countries. Ji told ABC News he was sending a defiant message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday night when he waved his crutches, which he keeps as a reminder of his journey to freedom. South Korean skiers will head to North Korea for a joint pre-Olympic training with their northern counterparts at the Masikryong Ski Resort, the Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

He studies law at Dongguk University and serves as the president of Now Action and Unity for Human Rights, a position that allows him to broadcast into North Korea "what the regime fears the most - the truth", Trump said.

USA officials said the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service was helping South Korean authorities with security, a role it has undertaken at every Olympics since the 1976 Montreal games.

Alongside Ji were Fred and Cindy Warmbier, parents of Otto Warmbier, the exchange student who died shortly after his return to the USA after having spent 17 months of captivity in North Korea.

Also present in the audience was Ji Seong-ho, a North Korean defector who was seriously injured during the starvation of the 1990s before escaping in 2004. The reasons behind why the Georgetown University academic and former advisor to George W. Bush was dropped is unclear, but differences in opinion on issues such as North Korea, and the South Korea-U.S. FTA, have been cited.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in sees the games as an opportunity to resume meaningful contact with the North following an extended period of tension and diplomatic stalemate over its nuclear weapons and missiles program.

The South Korean military said Thursday that the two allies had recently carried out their regular "Warrior Strike" exercise around US bases in the nation.

Air Force General Paul Selva's remarks confirmed an assessment by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in December that North Korea's ICBM did not pose an imminent threat to the United States.

We "have developed a pretty clear understanding of Kim Jong-Un's capability", Pompeo said. "Tonight, we pledge to honour Otto's memory with total American resolve", Trump said, as the tearful parents looked on.
