These displays of unity at the Olympics fill us with hope

11 February 2018, 11:47 | Taylor George

The handwritten invitation was delivered by Mr Kim's influential sister, Kim Yo-jong, at a landmark meeting in the presidential palace in Seoul, as the Winter Olympics opened.

On Thursday, Seong-ho met and embraced Fred Warmbier, the father of Otto Warmbier - the U.S. student who died in 2016 after being imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months.

Not long after, North and South Korean athletes entered Olympic Stadium together, waving flags showing a unified Korea - the long-time dream, in theory at least, of many Koreans in both North and South.

On his flight to Alaska on Saturday, the vice president said he left Asia "encouraged that we will continue to work very closely to continue and intensify the maximum pressure campaign" against North Korea. During the games, they're also accompanied by government minders tasked with security, supervision and translation duties who report suspicious activities back to Pyongyang, Young said.

Speaking on Thursday, Pence said: "Allow me to assure you and the people of South Korea that the U.S. will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in maximum pressure until North Korea finally and permanently and irreversibly abandons nuclear and ballistic ambitions". According to Anna Fifield, the Tokyo bureau chief for The Washington Post, there was a major mistake made during the VIP reception before the opening ceremony.

A big one could be a demand to cease the US-South Korean war games that North Korea claims are preparation for invasion.

N.Korea invites SKorean leader for summit in Pyongyang
Moon has invited Kim and other senior North Korean officials to a luncheon at Seoul's presidential palace on Saturday. South Korea and the DPRK fielded a joint women's ice hockey team, the first Olympic team between the two Koreas.

Kim Yo Jong is the sister of North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un and is a key advisor to her brother.

The protestors also directed their ire toward South Korean president Moon Jae-in, who has taken a softer stance toward North Korea than previous leaders. These statements, come, as the Olympic Games in South Korea's Pyeongchang got underway.

The visual was important, a USA official said.

During their meeting President Moon was pictured smiling and shaking hands with Kim Yo Jong.

So despite his concerted efforts to highlight North Korea's numerous offenses and push Moon to hold the hard line against Pyongyang, Pence seems to have been reduced to being a tag-along in yet another world leader's entourage.
