North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited the South's President Moon Jae-in for a summit in Pyongyang, Seoul said yesterday.

According to reports, Ms Kim left a note at the palace expressing hope that "Pyongyang and Seoul will become closer in the heart of Koreans" and for "unification and prosperity in the near future".

Mr Moon's spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said that Mr Kim's sister verbally delivered his offer during a lunch meeting with Mr Moon at Seoul's presidential palace.

"There is no daylight between the United States, the Republic of Korea, and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear ballistic missile program", Pence said in comments carried by CNN.

Kim Yo Jong has been an increasingly prominent figure in North Korea's leadership and is considered one of the few people who has earned Kim Jong Un's absolute trust.

South Korea yesterday investigated a mysterious internet shutdown during the Winter Olympics opening ceremony, which follows warnings of possible cyber attacks during the Pyeongchang Games.

The vice president's visit was also marked by bad blood between Pence and some US athletes.




As for sharing Moon's box with the North Koreans, the officials said they knew in advance who was going to be in Moon's box to watch the opening ceremony.

The US fought with South Korea and maintains tens of thousands of troops and an "ironclad" agreement to protect its ally.

However, analyst Robert E Kelly of Pusan National University tweeted that the inter-Korean relations would "return to form". He also said the ceremonies were not the appropriate venue for serious talks.

The first summit was in June 2000 between Kim Dae-jung, a proponent of the so-called Sunshine Policy, and Kim Jong Il. In January, South Korea's decision to allow the North's teams to compete in this year's Olympic games in Pyeongchang was a historic step toward diplomacy.

USA officials have remained suspicious over Kim's intentions as the North cosies up to the South over the Olympics.
