Kim Jong-un praises South Korea's warm welcome for Winter Olympics after sister's visit

Kim Jong-un praises South Korea's warm welcome for Winter Olympics after sister's visitNorth Korean leader Kim Jong-un has praised the welcome the South gave his sister and said it was important to build on the Olympics-driven momentum for dialogue on the divided peninsula. Kim's younger sister Kim Yo Jong – one of his closest confidantes – was part of the nuclear-armed North's diplomatic delegation to the Games that made worldwide headlines. She delivered his invitation for the South's President Moon Jae-in to come to a summit in Pyongyang – which he did not immediately accept, saying the "right conditions" were needed. The North is subject to multiple sets of UN Security Council sanctions over its banned nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, and conducted dozens of weapons tests last year. But the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang have triggered extraordinary scenes, with Moon and Kim cheering a unified Korean women's ice hockey team together – along with the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam – and attending a concert by Pyongyang's artistes. Even so analysts warn that the positive mood could evaporate quickly after the Games, when the US and South are due to hold major joint military exercises that always infuriate the North. Kim Jong-un met the delegation on Monday after it returned to Pyongyang, the official KCNA news agency reported. It indirectly cited Kim as saying it was important to enhance "the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue" created by the Winter Olympics – which for months the North refused to say whether it would attend. He gave instructions for "practical measures" to do so, it added, without giving details. The South's appreciation of the North's presence and the welcome it gave its representatives were "impressive", he said, thanking Seoul for its "sincere efforts". Close scrutiny  The KCNA report is the first official reaction from Kim - the third generation of the dynasty to rule the isolated and impoverished North – since his sister's charm offensive in the South. Kim Yo-jong's visit made her the first member of the family to set foot in the country since the end of the Korean War. Every detail of her trip was scrutinised, from the clothes she wore and her facial expressions to the bag she was carrying and even her handwriting. But it left South Koreans divided, with some hoping it might usher in a real opportunity for reconciliation while others angrily burned the North Korean flag and criticised Moon for being too soft on Pyongyang. How deep the rapprochement runs, how far it will go and how long it will last once the Games are over remain very open to question, analysts say. Pyongyang's Olympic diplomacy has also highlighted differences between Seoul and its key protector the United States over how to handle the reclusive regime and its nuclear weapons programme. Washington insists that Pyongyang must take concrete steps towards denuclearisation before any talks can begin, while Moon – whose parents escaped from the North in a US evacuation during the war – has long argued for closer involvement to bring it to the negotiating table.

Tillerson ends China trip with warm words from President Xi

Tillerson ends China trip with warm words from President XiBy Yeganeh Torbati and Michael Martina BEIJING (Reuters) – With warm words from Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ended his first trip to Asia since taking office with an agreement to work together with China on North Korea and putting aside trickier issues. China has been irritated at being repeatedly told by Washington to rein in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs and the U.S. decision to base an advanced missile defense system in South Korea. Beijing is also deeply suspicious of U.S. intentions toward self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as its own, with the Trump administration crafting a big new arms package for the island that is bound to anger China.

These stylish sweaters are warm, colorful and made for chickens

These stylish sweaters are warm, colorful and made for chickensBlizzards are best spent wrapped up in a well-worn sweater and all the blankets a couch can support.  But what about when you're a chicken? Good question. Great question. Egg-cellent question (sorry). SEE ALSO: Kind man dresses wild toad in wonderful, tiny hats to make a little boy happy It's a little-known fact that egg production goes way down for chickens living in tough winter conditions from a combination of low temperature and limited daylight hours. Lots of chickens aren't cut out for New England's winters — some breeds shed their feathers, while others from more tropical climates aren't used to the significantly colder temperatures.  Luckily for these chilly chickens, a group of Boston-area retirees has banded together to knit chicken-sized sweaters to help them fend off the cold. Does it come in green? Of course it does. Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock Barbara Stevens holds Prince Peep, who, again, is a chicken. Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock A knitting group at the Fuller Village retirement home in Milton, Massachusetts, was inspired to undertake the project after they "heard about the hardships that some chickens suffer this time of year," according to the Associated Press. Honestly, these chickens have never looked better. Someone get this rooster an agent. Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock Their nonchalance is truly selling the garment.  The knitting group said that the project helped them as well— one found it "calming," while another said it helped her overcome her fear of birds.  Even better, a spokesperson for the estate that owns the chickens said that "egg production has jumped noticeably since the birds began wearing them."
