North Korea’s leader has called for a “further livening up” of the “warm climate of reconciliation” with the South created by the Winter Olympics.
Kim Jong-un, whose nuclear bomb and missile tests have stoked international tension, praised the South for hosting his state at the games in Pyeongchang.
South Korean President President Moon Jae-in has meanwhile said the US is open to talking with the North.
He did not elaborate and may have been referring to a remark by US Vice-President Mike Pence on his flight back to Washington from the Games.
“If you want to talk, we’ll talk,” Mr Pence was quoted as saying by the Washington Post.
