BEIJING — South Korea leaped Tuesday at an offer of talks from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ahead of next month's Winter Olympics, betting that tensions between the two countries can be eased after more than a year of insults, military drills, missile launches and nuclear tests.

U.S. officials said they doubt Kim's sincerity but declared that Washington will not stand in the way, nor will it allow the North to drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States.
