IOC to consider joint Korean ice hockey team

Canada and its Korean War allies will sit down in Vancouver next week to mull ways to tighten the screws on North Korea - including whether to intercept North Korean shipping.

Representatives of the countries that sent troops or other military support to the United Nations -backed effort to repel North Korean forces after the 1950 invasion of South Korea will attend. China and Russian Federation, which both oppose the proposal for maritime interdiction, have not been invited to the summit.

The Trudeau government has provided little information in the days leading up to the Vancouver summit, despite being a co-host, and appears to be instead consumed with the threat of a trade war with the U.S.

He said that China has always supported global anti-terrorism cooperation on the basis of mutual respect.

"Any meeting organized in the name of the so called "UN Command" reflects Cold War thinking, which will only create divisions in the worldwide community and undermine the joint efforts that are being made to resolve properly the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue", the statement says. It will be co-hosted by Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

OTTAWA-It's a bit of Olympic détente, a case of sports diplomacy that has eased nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula. South Korea recenly seized two product tankers on charges of making illicit high-seas fuel transfers to North Korean ships, but these arrests occurred in port, not in worldwide waters.

He argued the resolution of the problem should be achieved through such frameworks as the suspended 6-party talks on the North's nuclear program and the UN Security Council, which involve North Korea and China.

State Department director of policy planning Brian Hook said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be looking for help developing "practical mechanisms" to pressure Pyongyang. The US sees cutting off North Korea's economic ties with China -the country's dominant trading partner - as essential to forcing Kim back to the negotiating table.

Japan has also raised concerns around the meeting, with Japanese officials suggesting too many countries are invited.

Kang also echoed President Moon Jae-in's remarks during his Wednesday telephone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump, giving credit to Washington for its weighty role to make the inter-Korean talks productive.
