The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) strongly criticized South Korean President Moon Jae-in for “thanking” US President Donald Trump for playing a role in bringing Pyongyang to the inter-Korean talks through maximum pressure and sanctions, as well as his call for “denuclearization” of the DPRK as the final goal of the talks. North Korea called these “ill-boding remarks chilling the atmosphere for reconciliation.” and warned of possible changes of its intention to participate in the Olympics, saying,”Everything is now at the beginning. The South Korean authorities had better ponder over what unfavorable results may be prompted by their impolite behavior”. The KCNA also accused South Korea of letting the United States send another nuclear aircraft carrier, Stennis, to the West Pacific during the Peyongchang Olympics, despite its agreement with Washington to postpone joint military drills during the games.
