"The North Koreans should understand that for a summit or any kind of serious talks to occur, Moon needs to be able to take something to Washington - something that addresses denuclearisation", he said before the North's invitation to Moon was announced.

They were also not able to get close to the VIP area, where US Vice-President Mike Pence and the real Kim's sister Kim Yo Jong were in attendance.

Prior to his arrival in South Korea, Pence told reporters in Japan part of the reason for his visit was to counter North Korean propaganda.

Rapprochement culminated when the whole world watched South and North Korean athletes jointly marching at the opening ceremony of the Games on Friday.

Certain restaurants in Pyeongchang, South Korea, have refused to stop serving dog meat during the Winter Olympics.

North Korean player Jong, who had one of the team's eight shots on the night, said she would like to see a unified team continue after the Olympics.

The opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on Friday brought together leaders from around the world, with the United States seated near Japan, Germany, South Korea, and, surprisingly, North Korea.

Based on their agreements, the North has sent hundreds of its athletes, cheerleaders, an art troupe and staffers to the games, which kicked off on Friday in the South's eastern town of PyeongChang.

I feel closer to him when I'm skiing", she said in a CNN interview. 'I'm skiing exceptionally well and I have a lot of confidence. She told stories about her grandfather coming home on sweltering summer afternoons covered in sweat, grease and a smile.

The games are being held about 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the border between North and South Korea, countries that technically have been at war since an armistice in 1953.

New Zealand were joined on the list by Germany, who sported a tan and green combination for the Winter Olympics' opening showpiece.

He said the U.S. would take whatever "action is necessary to defend our homeland" against the North Korean nuclear threat, according to an interview with NBC. But North Korea's record on human rights and the growing threat from its nuclear weapons program appeared out of mind.

The ceremony was marked by a show of unity between North and South Korea.

Lookalikes of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un who caused a stir at Friday's Pyeongchang Olympics opening ceremony have thanked organisers for their tender loving care.

North Korea's decision to participate has eased tensions after months of saber rattling and missile and nuclear tests that have raised fears it's closer-than-expected to achieving its goal of developing a nuclear weapon that could reach the US mainland.

The North Korean leader in turn has called Trump a "dotard" and threatened to fire missiles into the waters near the Pacific Island of Guam previous year.

North Korea has a track record of dangling peace to wrangle concessions and aid from the West only to renege on its promises.
