Hassam Hameed-TDO-23.02.2018- North Korea is sending its top general to ending ceremony of winter olympics being held in South Korea. It is considered to be a gesture of peace from North Korea. US has been skeptical of it and has asked to not fall for it and continue building up pressure on North Korea.

General Kim Yong-chol is one of the highest ranking figures in North Korea and was a former spy chief who was mastermind of several incidents in South Korea including the sinking of navy ship which had 46 killed in 2010.

Ivanka Trump is said to be leading US delegation at the event for the weekend. Though South Korea has denied organizing any sort of meeting between North Koreans And US delegation.

US has asked to continue putting pressure on North Korea until they do not abandon their nuclear programme and stop ripping their citizens of human rights.
