Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Tuesday (January 9) the Japanese government welcomed North Korea’s change in attitude when they showed interest in joining Pyeongchang Games, ahead of talks between the two Koreas.

As North and South Korea kicked off their first formal talks in more than two years, Pyongyang said it will send an Olympic delegation and a cheerleading team to the winter games, according to Seoul’s vice unification minister.

Suga said, however, Japan maintained its stance that the U.N. sanctions imposed on Pyongyang’s nuclear weapon and missile development programmes have to be strictly implemented.

The talks between the two Koreas come after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un used his New Year’s Day speech to announce he was open to dialogue as well as reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula, while vowing to never give up his nuclear arms program.
