Pence says there is "no daylight" between US and South Korea

Pence says there is

In the second row were seated North Korea's ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong-Nam, and Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Marching behind a flag of an undivided Korean peninsula, some 190 athletes from South and North Korea made a joint entrance at the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday met with senior North Korean officials including leader Kim Jong-un's sister over lunch at Seoul's presidential palace in the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach then handed the podium to Moon, who declared the Olympics officially open. Denying any role, the North fired dozens of shells at Yeonpyeong Island six months later, killing two South Korean soldiers. 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. She actually lit the cauldron as the home crowd roared.

Moon and the two North Korean delegates cheerfully clapped and waved as the athletes from the two Koreas jointly marched during the ceremony holding a blue-and-white flag symbolizing a unified Korean Peninsula. Seven weeks after that was the final presentation and vote.

"We are all touched by this wonderful gesture".

"For her to do that in English, I don't think she'd ever done it before, that kind of speech, a powerful, emotional speech", Burns said.

There will be plenty of sporting drama for both die-hard snow and ice junkies and the once-every-four-years enthusiast.

The significance of Pence and the North Koreans sitting in the same box seemed to run counter to the mission he was supposed to undertake.

Kim is "the Ivanka Trump of North Korea" because of her family connections and her ability to be a compelling saleswoman, said Sue Mi Terry, a former Korean analyst at the CIA who is now with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. We know that Ri used to sing in a propaganda band.

According to the ministry, which quoted North Korean officials, the mask bears the image of a generic good looking man and is used similarly to the mask in "Talchum", the Korean traditional mask dance.

Pence did say, however, that Moon shared with him details of his meeting with North Korean leaders, without elaborating.

Moon has benefited from the rock star-like reception that Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, has received here. Abe said he wanted to affirm trilateral cooperation with South Korea and the United States in dealing with North Korea. The North Koreans, dressed in identical garb, cheered in careful coordination. Pence whooped and hollered with his wife, Karen, at one end, while Kim Yo Jung smiled and clapped at the other.

A North Korean defector living in Bergen County is keeping a close eye on the Winter Olympics. And I think for all of us, it was this combination of a great hockey experience but also a really cool cultural experience.

Meanwhile, Ewing, an Army corporal, was stationed at Chuncheon as a helicopter crew chief, he told the outlet.

"If it leads to promises of aid, then it would definitely undermine the maximum pressure strategy", Gause said, referring to the proposed summit between the two Koreas. It was everything we have come to expect from a world-class Olympic Games, a coordinated and ritzy show on behalf the entire planet.

An emergency warning has been issued to phones in the Korean Winter Olympic city and surrounds after a 4.6 magnitude earthquake struck south of Pyeongchang, sending panic through the town.

Whether the DPRK will compromise depends on whether its economy can endure the economic sanctions that have already approached an extreme.
