This is the first time North and South Korea have marched together since the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

Twenty-two Olympic athletes call California home, including two-time gold medalist Shaun White, who is headed to his fourth Olympic Games.

Past "charm offensives" have been interpreted as North Korea trying to recoup from crippling sanctions on their nuclear programme, or trying to drive a wedge between Seoul and its United States ally.

An intruder twice invaded the stage at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in PyeongChang, South Korea, on Friday.

"And to recognize that whatever images may emerge against the powerful backdrop and idealism of the Olympics, North Korea has to accept change", Pence told reporters at a South Korean naval base before heading to the Olympic Games venue.

Moon's office said he told Abe that the talks between the Koreas would not disrupt worldwide efforts to deal with North Korea's nuclear program.

After an amazingly slick drumming section performed by an all-female group, who then formed the South Korean flag, the parade of nations began featuring plenty of colourful outfits and excited athletes.

North Korea conducted its largest nuclear test past year and said it had developed a missile capable of carrying a warhead to the United States.

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.

Facebook reportedly testing out a "downvote" (not dislike) button
In addition to being able to like or reply to comments, besides those two features, some users may also see "downvote" displayed. However, the social network denied that the new feature was a "dislike" button, which many Facebook users have requested.

US officials have been urging South Korea to be cautious in its rapprochement with the North - a point Pence drilled home in private meetings with Moon on Thursday.

"Politics will continue. I'll leave politicians to comment about politics".

NBC hopes to see a jump in the numbers with the delayed telecast of the opening ceremonies Friday night. The rhetoric war between North Korea and the Trump administration hasn't skipped a beat in Pyeongchang.

The United States has repeatedly pressed China, North Korea's most significant trading partner and main ally, to do more to rein in Pyongyang's nuclear and missile ambitions.

Pence rode to the reception with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and the two held a private conversation while waiting more than 10 minutes for a photo opportunity with Moon.

The two Koreas have a rocky and sometimes violent history at the Blue House.

Kim Yo Jong is probably Kim's closest confidant and is a senior cadre in North Korea's ruling party. Kim Yo-jong is the first of the North's Kim dynasty to visit the South.

While Moon did not hesitate to shake hands and smile with his North Korean visitors, Pence didn't appear to even look in the direction of the North Korean delegation during the Friday event. Moon asked the delegation, before reporters were ushered from the room.
