On the sidelines, Kang could meet her counterparts from the US, Japan and other countries for bilateral or trilateral talks, according to ministry officials.

The president's remarks come after North and South Korea this week held their first talks in two years, and the North agreed to participate in the Winter Olympics in the South next month.

South Korea was forecast to call for the North Korean side to discuss issues on forming the unified team of the two countries in some sports competitions, cheering together and marching together during an opening ceremony.

The article in state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said recent high-level talks "proved again that there is no problem unsolvable if the North and the South pool their efforts".

During the Universiade Games in Daegu in 2003, a bus carrying North Korean cheerleaders suddenly stopped on a high way.

The cheerleaders screamed, asking how a dear leader's picture could be left alone on in the middle of streets without due respects, and took the placard down.

"I believe, Mr Kim Jong-un has certainly won this round", he added, also saying that the leader "has a nuclear (charge) and a ... missile with a range of up to 13,000 kilometers that can reach almost any place on Earth or at least any territory of his potential adversary".
