SEOUL, South Korea —Kim Jong Un’s sister overwhelmed down in Seoul on Friday forward of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, apropos the first member of her family to revisit the South given the Korean War.
Arriving on her brother’s private jet for a three-day visit, Kim Yo Jong smiled as a organisation of South Korean officials, including Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, greeted her and the rest of the representatives at Incheon International Airport.
She is slated to attend the opening rite in Pyeongchang on Friday, before assembly with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the presidential house on Saturday.
Moon has been trying to use the games as an event to finish the tactful stand-off with North Korea and eventually solve the general deadlock over its nuclear program.
But skeptics contend North Korea, which is doubtful to give up its nukes under any deal, is just using the Olympics to poke holes at the U.S.-led general sanctions against the country and buy some-more time to serve allege its vital weaponry.
After all, the commission arrived just one day after Kim Jong Un presided over a large military march that highlighted the country’s intercontinental ballistic missiles, which could potentially strech the U.S.
As first clamp executive of the Central Committee of North Korea’s statute Workers’ Party,Kim Yo Jong has been an increasingly distinguished figure in North Korea’s care and is deliberate one of the few people who has warranted her brother’s comprehensive trust.
Analysts contend the North’s decision to send her to the Olympics shows an aspiration to mangle out from tactful siege and vigour by improving family with the South, which it could use as a overpass for coming the United States.
By promulgation a youthful, photogenic person who will positively attract general courtesy during the games, North Korea may also be trying to qualification a fresher open picture and defang any U.S. bid to use the Olympics to prominence the North’s brutal human rights record.
It stays misleading either Kim will send a personal summary to Moon by his sister and, if so, either it would embody a offer for a limit between the two leaders.
