02/14/2018: DPRK 'charm offensive' captures Olympics spotlight, but what's next?

Almost one week into the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the DPRK delegation has captured the spotlight with what's been called by some as a charm offensive. The DPRK leader Kim Jong Un has also invited ROK President Moon Jae-in to visit his country. Moon indicated that he would accept the invitation under the right circumstances and suggested that the DPRK and the US should also talk with each other. Showing an apparent shift in strategy, the US vice president now says the US would talk with the DPRK, without preconditions, as long as the campaign of maximum pressure is maintained. What has led to the change of tone on the part of the US? Could the positive momentum on the Peninsula translate into concrete actions after the Olympic games? Einar Tangen, a current affairs commentator, Dr. Zhao Tong, a research fellow at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center For Global Policy and Prof. Tat Yan Kong from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London joined the Point.
