Officials from North Korea and South Korea met today in the Demilitarized Zone for the first high-level talks in more than two years, amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, largely sparked by President Trump’s repeated threats to launch a nuclear strike against North Korea. During the meeting, North Korea said it would send a delegation of athletes, officials and cheerleaders to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February. The two countries will also reinstate a military hotline that was suspended for nearly two years.
