    Kim Jong-un praises ‘sincere, impressive’ South Korea

    North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has praised the “warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue” after a delegation returned from their three-day visit to the South for the Winter Olympics.
    Kim expressed “satisfaction” over their visit, according to state media, and gave his gratitude for “sincere” and “very impressive” efforts made by Seoul to receive them.
    “It is important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue created by the strong desire and common will of the North and the South with the Winter Olympics as a momentum,” he said.
    There was no mention of the offer of a summit made to the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, via Kim Yo-jong – the North Korean leader’s sister who was part of the delegation. Kim Yo-jong delivered a letter from her brother while she was in Seoul asking Moon to visit “at his earliest convenience”. Moon replied that both Koreas should try to bring about conditions that would make the visit possible.
