Russia's Winter Olympics Ban Doesn't Carry Over to Steep's New Olympics DLC

Haley asserted recently that North Korea's most recent missile test has brought Washington and Pyongyang "closer to war", adding that "if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed".

The U.S. looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

"I think those are conversations we are going to have to have, but what have we always said?" she asked.

Pressed about whether she would feel comfortable sending a family member to attend the games, Haley noted that the situation between the two countries was changing constantly.

In that context, some experts said it was more likely that attacks would be carried out against USA targets in response to Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem than a full-scale war would break out with North Korea before the Olympics.

"No official decision has been made on that and we'll keep you guys posted as those decisions are made", Sanders said. We don't fear anything.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley made the remarks when she was asked by Fox News on Wednesday if the U.S. has made a final decision to compete in Pyeongchang.

"What we will do is make sure we're taking every precaution possible to make sure that they're safe and to know everything that's going on around them".

The U.S. mission to the United Nations later added to her comments with a similar statement as Sanders's. "We remain closely engaged with the South Koreans and other partner nations to secure the venues as we do every Olympics".

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley seemed to suggest Thursday that the US might not compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea and called the matter an "open question".

Haley's office did not respond to request for comment or clarification by the time of publication.

Collins said that the absence of US athletes at the games would suggest volatility at a time when officials should be intent on remaining calm, and could undermine the relationship with key allies in the region. The North Korean regime has launched almost two dozen missiles this year, including three intercontinental ballistic missiles, and tested a suspected staged thermonuclear device, raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
