North Korea is "willing to have talks" with the United States, South Korea's presidential Blue House said Sunday, as the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics closed in a burst of fireworks and diplomacy.
President Moon Jae-in achieved his goal of using the Olympics as "peace games" to encourage both North Korea and the United States to ease off their threats, at least temporarily.
During an hour-long meeting in Pyeongchang on Sunday night, North Korea's chief representatives at the closing ceremonies told Moon that Pyongyang was open to dialogue with Washington.
"The North agrees that inter-Korean relations and North Korea-U. S. relations should improve together," the presidential Blue House said in a statement after the talks.
