South Korea has chose to consider both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of two Koreas' militaries in its comparative analysis of their overall strengths, Seoul's defense ministry said Thursday.
"Today's friendly match will be a display of top basketball skills and the great sportsmanship of all the players from both of our countries", Kim Il Guk, the North Korean minister of sports, said before the game began. "Still, in seeking inter-Korean exchanges and cooperation and amid improving relations between the two Koreas, we have been taking measures in a flexible manner", Cho said as quoted by the Yonhap news agency.
In the BBC interview, Moon said the actions could include opening of a USA liaison office in North Korea, humanitarian aid and an exchange of economic experts.
The conservative Chosun Ilbo newspaper added: "What brought the North to the negotiating table for denuclearisation was the unprecedented tough sanctions".
Trump said "eventually we're going to have lots of meetings on USA soil and on their soil by the way".
Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the audience will come a day after the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, celebrates a Mass for peace on the Korean Peninsula in St. Peter's Basilica, where Moon will participate.
Senior diplomats of North Korea, China and Russian Federation have called for "corresponding measures" in response to the North's "practical" denuclearization steps, the North's state media reported Thursday.

Despite meeting Moon three times and holding a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in June, Kim has yet to provide a convincing sign that he's ready to deal away his nuclear weapons, which he may see as his strongest guarantee of survival. When Pompeo was in North Korea in July - his last visit there - Kim would not even met with him.
Asked about Kang's remarks and consultation with South Korea, Trump said, "They won't do it without our approval".
And when the North makes substantial progress in denuclearisation, a gradual easing of economic sanctions Pyongyang should be "seriously considered", Moon said.
South Koreans are deeply divided along ideological lines and many people still harbor deep anger over North Korea's 1950 attack that started the Korean War, killing and injuring millions.
