S. Korean president declares 2018 Winter Olympic Games open

Seated behind Pence are Kim Yong-nam, third from top right, president of the Presidium of North Korean Parliament, and Kim Yo-jong, second from top right, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Pence tweeted to Olympian Adam Rippon: "I want you to know we are FOR YOU". However, Kim was spotted sitting only a few seats away from Mr. Pence's seat in the VIP box, where world leaders sat to cheer their teams on during a vibrant opening ceremony.

Moon was joined by his national security director Chung Eui-yong, chief of staff Im Jong-seok, National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon and Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon. Kim Hye-sook, a defector who fled North Korea in 2009, reminded press covering the Olympics to remember "the millions of people who are struggling to survive in North Korea".

In stark contrast, two kinds of kimchi - the fermented cabbage that features in every Korean meal - were on the menu for the delegation's lunch with Moon at the Blue House on Saturday, one mild Northern style version and a spicier Southern recipe, along with soju, the traditional Korean rice liquor.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un attended the military show accompanied by his wife, Ri Sol Ju.

Kim Jong Un tells his forces to keep a high level of combat readiness against the USA, flanked by his wife in a rare appearance.

"Kim Jong-un couldn't travel himself, he would have loved to do that, but he would have an arrest warrant in South Korea", Dr Petrov said.

Just a few years younger than her brother, she is believed to be his closest confidant and is a senior cadre in North Korea's ruling party.

The two men will jointly support the team in the evening match in Gangneung against Switzerland, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing Seoul's presidential Blue House. But Vice President Mike Pence and Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong were there and sat near one another.

The Vice President is traveling to the Olympic Games in South Korea to reinforce the strong US presence on the Korean Peninsula and send a clear message of American resolve to the North Korean regime. They were stopped and most were killed near the palace, which was newly rebuilt in 1991.

South Korean media have been speculating about whether Kim Jong will send a personal message to Moon through his sister and, if so, whether it would include a proposal for a summit between the two leaders. Moon had earlier met Kim Yong Nam during a dinner he hosted for visiting dignitaries.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae In on Friday urged Seoul to steadily implement its December 2015 bilateral accord with Tokyo on the issue of so-called comfort women.

Considering the depth and complexity of the problems that keep the Koreas apart, it's highly unlikely a luncheon would lead to an immediate breakthrough on something like the North's nuclear weapons development.

As if to drive the point home, Kim Jong Un used the eve of the Olympics to throw a massive military parade in Pyongyang that was highlighted by several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles rolled out in launcher trucks.

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

Diplomatic sources with deep knowledge of North Korea's activities told CNN that despite outwardly positive signs and indications of a "charm offensive" from Pyongyang, what's "unclear and bizarre" is there has not been any concurrent diplomatic movement from North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This is the first time a member of the Kim dynasty has travelled to South Korea, though their grandfather, Kim Il Sung, went to areas occupied by his troops south of what is now the Demilitarized Zone during the 1950-53 Korean War. "S. during our visit to South Korea", and no plans to use as a political vehicle, Cho said. wants to use the event to re-engage with and open the way for talks to resolve one of the world's most risky crises, in which U. S. President and Pyongyang have swapped nuclear threats.
