"North Korea's participation in the Winter Games will be a good opportunity to showcase the national pride and we wish the Games will be a success".

South Korea said it welcomed Kim's offer.

The remarks indicate an opening for dialogue after months of tensions that have seen President Donald Trump's administration warn of military action to prevent Kim from threatening the USA with nuclear weapons.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has repeatedly expressed his hope that the North will participate in the Winter Games.

He said the North and South could meet urgently to discuss the North sending a delegation.

In that context, there was little in Kim's speech to suggest that President Donald Trump's bellicose rhetoric and uncompromising position on North Korea have succeeded at intimidating him into submission, but his combination of nuclear saber-rattling at the US with an overture of reconciliation to South Korea could provide some clues as to Pyongyang's diplomatic strategy going forward.

"President Moon needs a successful Olympics and the USA drive to increase pressure fits poorly with the Southern agenda". "We are willing to talk with North Korea on the peaceful resolution of the North's nuclear program regardless of form, time and method", said Choi in a regular briefing. He said North Korea's nuclear deterrent was "irreversible" and that it would prevent Trump from starting a war. On Saturday, North Korea said it had no plans to alter the course of its nuclear weapons development in the coming year, but Kim's latest remarks suggest that he may in fact be more receptive to Moon's proposal than he looks. But North Korea snubbed his overtures, including an offer to hold inter-Korean military talks about ceasing hostile activities along the border, as it tested missiles at an unprecedented pace. The implication of the statement was clear: Kim, and only Kim, could launch North Korea's nuclear weapons.

He also proclaimed that his country achieved the historic feat of "completing" its nuclear forces in 2017.

Early Sunday retired U.S. Navy admiral and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mike Mullen, said America and North Korea are closer to conflict "than we've ever been".
