Move raises hopes of diplomatic thaw after Kim Jong-un said he would consider sending athletes to Winter Olympics
North Korea has reopened a vital line of communication with South Korea, raising hopes of a diplomatic thaw days after Kim Jong-un said he would consider sending his country’s athletes to next month’s Winter Olympics, to be held just south of the border.
Hours after Donald Trump again baited the North Korean leader on Twitter – this time with a boast about the size and efficacy of his nuclear button – Pyongyang said it would resume communications at the truce village of Panmunjom at 6.30am GMT on Wednesday.
The telephone hotline between North and South Korea that reopened on Wednesday was never really severed in the literal sense.
