South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Saturday that he hopes his efforts to engage rival North Korea at the Olympics will also lead to better ties between the North and its other major rival, Washington, as well as help set up talks on ridding the North of its nuclear bombs.Moon has yet to accept the North Korean offer, which was delivered Feb. 10 by Kim's younger sister, Kim Yo Jong.Moon likely wants his talks with the North to be accompanied with warming ties between Pyongyang and Washington so there's less chance of aliening the South's most crucial ally, which keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea to deter an attack by the North.Moon and Kim Jong Un's sister rose, but U.S. Vice President Mike Pence stayed in his seat.
