Oh come on Dutch. "I know you are but what am I" is something Donald would say.

I'd take what the North Korean government says with a giant grain of salt. The last time the South hosted the Olympics and blacklisted the North the North blew up a passenger airplane and killed all 115 people on board. The South wants to avoid a repeat of that at all costs, which would explain why they were more than happy to strike a deal that would allow the North to participate in the games.
However, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a broader deal that begins to cool the rising tensions between the two governments.
Dutch Wrote: They also said that their missiles are only pointed at the US.
If you actually believe that there are no missiles pointed at South Korea then you have lost all touch with reality.
There are over 15,000 short range, heavy artillery pieces aimed directly at Seoul along the DMZ, and those are the ones that the North hasn't even bothered to hide. There's likely tens of thousands of more in underground bunkers scattered throughout the DMZ that are just waiting for the Dear Leader's orders to be let loose.
None of these thousands of short range missiles can come close to striking US territory (Guam is 2,131 miles from North Korea), let alone the US mainland.
The number of weapons the North have that could directly threaten the US are dwarfed by those that can destroy Seoul and much of Japan.

Thus I stick to what I said; i.e. The US should stay out of these talks or any agreements between those two countries. Let's hope that the 30,000 US military can go home eventually if these talks succeed without US bullying or interference.
It has nothing to do whether I like it or not or because I'm an "island inhabitant." What you're claiming is simply not factual.
