Asked about Haley's remarks, the source pointed out that the USA leader also made a pledge about the U.S.' participation in the Olympics during his telephone talks with Moon last month.

It began with Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, telling Fox News late Wednesday that "there's an open question" about whether American athletes would go to the February 9-25 Winter Games in the city of Pyeongchang.

Her remark came shortly after White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made similar comments on Twitter.

United States participation in the Pyeongchang Games came under question this week as a result of "miscommunication" from the White House, but according to the leader of the U.S. Olympic Committee, Scott Blackmun, there will be a team competing "unless it's legally or physically impossible". Freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy told Sports Illustrated back in June that he would not accept a White House invitation either.

U.S. trip to Olympics uncertain amid North Korea threat, Haley says
Tensions have spiked on the Korean Peninsula in recent months, as North Korea proceeded with missile testing at an unexpectedly fast pace.

Still, Haley said Wednesday she believed President Donald Trump's administration would work to "find out the best way" to make sure the athletes are protected. "It's just we're going to write off our president'". "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", Haley said.

But when asked if it's a "done deal" that U.S. athletes will be able to attend the Olympics, Haley said: "There's an open question".

"I think those are conversations we're going to have to have". The IOC accused Russian Federation of systematic abuse of anti-doping rules at various sporting events, including the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
