North Korea cancelled meeting with Vice President Pence at last minute

Yomiuri reported on remarks on Tuesday by State Department Spokesperson Nauert, in which she reportedly disclosed that the North Korean delegation to the PyeongChang Olympics cancelled a meeting with Vice President Pence at the last minute. Sankei cited a Washington Post report saying that North Korea cancelled the meeting due to the Vice President’s reference to strengthened sanctions and his meeting with North Korean defectors. Meanwhile, Nikkei quoted Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga as saying at a news conference on Wednesday that Prime Minister Abe had close discussions with Vice President Pence on how to respond to the North Korean delegation and received sufficient information from the United States.
