Report: Nuclear experts among N Korea closing ceremony delegation

Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - North Korean diplomats responsible for negotiating over the country‘s nuclear and missile programmes are among the delegation set to attend the Winter Olympics closing ceremony in Seoul, local media reported.

It is unusual for the North to send any such high-ranking officials involved in such sensitive areas to the South, as Pyongyang has always regarded these as matters to be discussed directly with Washington, Yonhap News Agency reported on Saturday, citing a government source.

The decision to send the officials for Sunday‘s send-off - among many other apparently conciliatory steps taken at the games, such as marching together in the opening ceremony - has led to speculation that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be willing to re-enter negotiations over his nuclear programme.

The programme - including several nuclear tests and other missile launches in the past few years - has led to the imposition of what the United States and Japan have described as "maximum" pressure via the strictest ever international sanctions.

Writing on Twitter on Friday, US President Donald Trump warned of a "phase two" of measures to come if sanctions do not get Kim to stop his nuclear project.

The US is also sending a high-level official to the closing ceremony in the person of Ivanka Trump, a senior White House advisor and the president‘s daughter.

Trump on Saturday attended a snowboarding event, where US competitor Kyle Mack picked up a silver, and met other athletes at the US base in Pyeongchang.

She also met South Korean first lady Kim Jung Suk at the event.
