South Korean president to meet sister of North Korean leader

"Kim Yo-jong's power exists because of proximity to the leader himself. Even for a moment, it appears to be a normal state".

Internal systems crashed just before Friday's ceremony but didn't disrupt the high-tech gala, which was attended by VIPs including the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and US Vice-President Mike Pence.

He said the North was using the Games for crude propaganda.

Aides acknowledged that the hard-nosed message is an unusual one for the affable Pence, but said the circumstances warrant the tone.

Moon responded to the invitation by suggesting the two countries "should accomplish this by creating the right conditions", adding that talks between North Korea and the United States were also needed, and requested that North Korea be more active in talking with the US, according to Kim Eui-kyeom.

"I think this overture towards South Korea is partly sanctions-related, and also related to the fact that it's clear a divergence has developed between Washington and Seoul's most keenly desired goals in the near term", said Andray Abrahamian, a research fellow at Pacific Forum CSIS in Hawaii.

However, South Korea's main opposition party warned that any talks between the two Koreas where the scrapping of North Korea's nuclear programme was not a precondition would only "benefit the enemy".

Pence insisted, "There is no daylight between South Korea and the United States". "We'll be watching. Moon Connyoung, Arirang News, the Blue House". "There were some issues that impacted some of our non- critical systems last night for a few hours", Games organisers said in a statement. -North Korea meetings (or lack thereof) ignores what was going on beneath the surface. Global alarm at the rapid advance of nuclear-armed North Korea's weapons technology rose further past year when the regime tested its Hwasong-15 ballistic missile theoretically capable of hitting the mainland U.S., in a challenge to Washington that has threatened to "utterly destroy" the regime in the event of an attack.




North Korea is under a heavy United Nations sanctions regime which was originally targeted at stopping the proliferation of arms and nuclear and missile technologies, but has become more all-encompassing after its accelerated missile testing.

He did not attend the state dinner, which was attended by Kim Jong Un's sister.

Regardless, both Pence and the North Korean officials can return home and claim they did what they came to Pyeongchang to do.

Fuel prices have risen and more wood-fired Soviet-era trucks have been seen on the outskirts of the capital, said the resident, speaking on condition of anonymity. "Pyeongchang Olympics will become the hope and light for everyone that hopes for peace, not only on the Korean peninsula but in northeast Asia and the entire world", said Lee.

At a glittering but sub-zero ceremony, South and North Korea brought the crowd to its feet as they entered behind the blue-and-white Korean unification flag.

A swath of North Korea cheerleaders, a group of 230 women sent from North Korea dubbed its "army of beauties," was sitting in the stands and garnering a lot of attention.

"Pence sat in front row and talked to Moon and Abe and their spouses, and the North Koreans sat in the back and didn't talk to anybody, and that image is telling", the official added.
