Kim Yo Jong Fascinates, And Puzzles, In South Korea

He supported Pence's moves to meet with North Korean defectors, paying respects at a memorial to the 46 South Korean sailors killed in a 2010 torpedo attack blamed on the North. Pence also invited as his Olympics guest the father of USA college student Otto Warmbier, who died after he was imprisoned by North Korea for stealing a propaganda poster.

Pence had said all week that if he met with the North Koreans, he would deliver a tough message.

And as protesters raged against the presence in Pyeongchang of North Korean athletes and dignitaries, including Kim's sister Kim Yo-jong, the two fake leaders were given a warm reception by stunned onlookers. They handed the torch over to figure skater Yuna Kim, a South Korean who won the gold medal in 2010 and the silver medal in 2014 who lit the Olympic cauldron.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam will together attend the unified Korean women's ice hockey team's first match at the Winter Olympics Saturday, a report said.

Though this is not the first time athletes from the two countries have entered the Olympics together, it would take an extraordinary sporting feat to usurp the Koreans' march as the predominant moment of these Games.

North Korea had sent its own delegation to the Olympic Games that included Kim Jong Un's sister Kim Yo Jong, the first member of the of the Kim family to visit the South since the 1950 - 1953 Korean War.

"There is no daylight between the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear and ballistic missile programme", Pence said as he flew back to the United States.

Pence was asked about Thursday's military parade in North Korea overseen by dictator Kim Jong Un.

But Kim Yo Jong didn't speak or shake hands with US Vice President Mike Pence, who was there with the Second Lady, Karen Pence.

"Oh my god they're coming in right next to us!" said one spectator as they filed in, carrying blue bags and followed by a scrum of photo journalists and excited onlookers.

Critics say it's unclear whether revived dialogue between the Koreas could lead to immediate breakthrough on the nuclear stalemate when it seems unlikely that the North would be willing to give up its nukes under any deal.

They're only a few days in, but the PyeongChang Winter Olympics have already been interesting for a little peek into the culture of North Korea.

"We want to see President Moon become a protagonist in opening a new chapter for reunification and leave great footprints in history", she said.

Under the deal, Japan paid 1 billion yen ($9.1 million) to a foundation to support the victims and Abe expressed his "most honest apologies and remorse" to them.

At an official lunch hosted by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Guterres expressed his "total support" to Moon for establishing "a very important positive development in inter-Korean relations".

They lined the streets here in the cold on Saturday, waving and cheering and shouting out, "We are one!" as the team bus roared past.

Sarah Murray, the Canadian coach of the Korean team, said she and her staff have intentionally played down the historic nature of the team since the players are facing enough challenges with the late addition of the North Korean players.
