White House Hopes for N. Korea's Denuclearization after Progress in Inter-Korean Talks

The White House has expressed hope that North Korea will now move toward denuclearization after Pyongyang agreed to participate in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics during high-level inter-Korean talks. 

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the remark on Tuesday in a news conference in response to a question asking what the White House wants to see as Pyongyang's next step. 

Sanders said that the North's decision to participate in the Olympics presents the regime with an opportunity to see the value of ending its isolation from the rest of the world, adding the U.S. and other world powers want North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.  

She also said that North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics won't affect U.S. participation in the games, denying speculation that the U.S. may boycott the games if the North participates. 

The spokeswoman said that members of a U.S. delegation that will attend the Winter Olympics will be announced within days.  

U.S. online media "Around the Rings" on Tuesday quoted a White House national security council official as saying that President Donald Trump will make the official announcement on the U.S. delegation to the Olympics within 24 hours .

The delegation will reportedly include U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, and possibly First Lady Melania Trump or the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump.
