North Korea's Kim invites S Korean leader to Pyongyang

South Korea's president hosts North Korea delegation, including dictator's sister

"And so when you put it that way they're not really participating in the Olympics", said Warmbier, who is the personal guest of Vice President Mike Pence at the Games.

Kim Yo-Jong, the sister of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un, arrives at the Presidential Blue House in Seoul, South Korea, February 10, 2018.

Moon's visit is highly possible, if South Korea and the United States downscale their military exercises, while DPRK agrees to freeze its nuclear program and stop testing missiles, he added.

"We have no intention to meet the U.S. side during our visit to South Korea", Jo said in a terse statement reported by state-run news agency KCNA.

President Thomas Bach will visit North Korea after the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Reuters reported on Monday.

North and South Korean leaders swapped warm handshakes and smiles at Friday's opening ceremony, enabling the International Olympic Committee to present the Games as enablers of peace and take the media spotlight away from a Russian doping scandal that has plagued it for years.

Pence was in close proximity to the North Korean party both at the VIP reception and later, watching the Opening Ceremony from Moon's box, which included Kim Yong Nam and leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong.




During the visit, Kim Yo Jong had delivered a letter from her brother asking South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit Pyongyang at his earliest convenience.

Contrarily, North Korea has been raising the pitch on its missile development game plan.

Washington calls it a campaign of "maximum pressure".

It remains uncertain whether such drills would interrupt potential plans for a third ever inter-Korean summit - the last of which was held in 2007.

Although inter-Korean talks are occurring on the sidelines of the Olympics, Pence is confident that Seoul and Tokyo "are solidly with our alliance and the need to continue and intensify economic sanctions", the official said.

She shook hands with Moon and smiled faintly as the South Korean leader entered a meeting room at the Blue House on Saturday. Jo Yong Sam, department director general of North Korea's foreign ministry, said Thursday the country had never "begged the U.S. for dialogue" and wasn't about to start now.

A senior administration official said Moon did express to the vice president that he hoped there could be some potential interaction between Pence and the North Korean delegations during the games - something that did not occur.
