However, on a stop in Alaska en route to Japan, Pence left open the possibility of a face-to-face with senior North Korean officials who are also attending Friday's ceremony in South Korea.

This items corrects that Kim Yo Jong is the leader's sister. But she has generally remained safely cloaked in her brother's shadow.

Guterres met the 22-member North Korean delegation, which was led by Yong-nam. Pence was also at the dinner and reportedly refused to shake the elderly North Korean's hand.

Pence was seated between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with Kim Yo Jong and Kim Yong Nam, North Korea's 90-year-old nominal head of state, seated a row behind. Moon has long argued for engagement with the North to bring it to the negotiating table over its nuclear ambitions, but did not immediately accept the offer.

It culminated in Ms Kim meeting Mr Moon at the presidential palace, during which the handwritten invitation to the North Korean capital was delivered.

An hour before the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, a group of North Korean cheerleaders drew the attention of South Korean spectators with a short yet impactful chant: "We are one".

The delegation's most substantive event may come outside of the Olympic ambit on Saturday.

A high-ranking DPRK delegation arrived in South Korea by private jet earlier in the day to attend the opening ceremony. The meeting could turn out to be just a lunch, a photo op or a nicety.

A visit by Mr Moon to the North would enable the first summit between leaders from the two Koreas since 2007.

Moon said improved relations between the Koreas may be a step toward resolving the nuclear standoff.

Athletes from South Korea and the DPRK had marched together for the first time at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Summer Olympics in 2000.

But during her stay, Kim Yo Jong will have ample opportunity to play up the feel-good side of her country's participation in the games.

Pence, who led the USA delegation to the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, was seated next to the host country's President Moon Jae-in, as well as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. They may also see a performance by a visiting North Korean art troupe in Seoul on Sunday before flying back to Pyongyang.
