Vice President Mike Pence left the door open to possible high-level meetings with senior North Korean officials at the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics on Tuesday, telling reporters he has no official plans to meet with Kim’s regime but said “we’ll see what happens.”
According to ABC News, the Vice President was speaking with reporters ahead of his upcoming trip to South Korea when he was asked whether he had any scheduled discussions with members of the rogue communist regime.
“With regard to any interaction with the North Korean delegation, I have not requested a meeting, but we’ll see what happens,” said Pence as he prepped his departure for the one-week long journey to the Korean peninsula.
“President Trump has said he always believes in talking, but I haven’t requested any meetings. But we’ll see what happens,” he added.
Vice President Pence leads the American political delegation to the 2018 Winter Games, and is joined by Otto Warmbier, the father of a 22-year old student who died after being detained and severely tortured by Kim’s communist regime.
