Vice President Mike Pence left the door open to possible high-level meetings with senior North Korean officials at the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics on Tuesday, telling reporters he has no official plans to meet with Kim’s regime but said “we’ll see what happens.”

According to ABC News, the Vice President was speaking with reporters ahead of his upcoming trip to South Korea when he was asked whether he had any scheduled discussions with members of the rogue communist regime.

“With regard to any interaction with the North Korean delegation, I have not requested a meeting, but we’ll see what happens,” said Pence as he prepped his departure for the one-week long journey to the Korean peninsula.

President Trump has said he always believes in talking, but I haven’t requested any meetings. But we’ll see what happens,” he added.

Vice President Pence leads the American political delegation to the 2018 Winter Games, and is joined by Otto Warmbier, the father of a 22-year old student who died after being detained and severely tortured by Kim’s communist regime.

In a rare gesture of friendship and international cooperation, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un wished South Korea “success” in hosting the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games; saying the competition goes “beyond all political division.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, the communist despot mentioned the games in his annual New Year’s Day address to the nation, adding that the hermit kingdom would soon dispatch a delegation to Seoul to coordinate sending North Korean athletes to compete in the international competition.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.

“We know about the political tensions on the Korean Peninsula,” added International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach. “The Olympic Games are about dialogue. They are a symbol of hope and peace.”

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are at an all-time high as Kim Jong Un continues to defy the international community and advance his weapons and missile programs.

Earlier this year, the communist nation was hit with crippling sanctions by the United Nations after North Korea launched an international ballistic missile capable of striking every major American city.

DOOMSDAY DELAY: Kim RE-OPENS COMMUNICATIONS with South Korea

North Korea surprisingly re-opened a pivotal hotline between the hermit kingdom and South Korea on Wednesday, enabling direct communication for the first time in two-years as the two nations ease tensions ahead of this year’s 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The cross-border channel was first introduced in 1971 as a last-ditch effort to avoid yet another armed conflict on the Korean peninsula, but was shut down in recent years as the relationship between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States rapidly deteriorated.

The hotline sits in the “peace village” of Panmunjom, a ghost town that straddles the heavily fortified de-militarized zone between North and South Korea.

News of its restoration comes just days after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un issued a rare statement of good will towards his neighbors south of the border, wishing them success as they prepare to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.
