Kim Jong-un pledges for reconciliation between Koreas

It may seem odd or even self-defeating for the South to pay Pyongyang to send delegations that are heavy on propaganda vehicles like cheering squads or artistic troupes and light on athletes.

Pence told the Axios news outlet in an interview the United States would continue to intensify diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea and that the sanctions would not be lifted until it abandoned its weapons programs.

Korean youths from the two countries should be encouraged to embrace peace through the exemplary conduct of their leaders and should be encouraged to love and not war in which they could lose their lives and properties.

Moon is eager to use Kim's presence at the games to restore regular communication with North Korea and eventually pull it into nuclear talks.

"(I wanted to) enjoy the game, meet the cheerleaders, which I did, and create some good political satire", he said.

North Korea finished 13th in pair skating at the Winter Olympics as each competitor achieved a personal-best score. She relayed her brother's invitation to South Korea President Moon Jae-In to a summit meeting in Pyongyang.

Kim Jong Un received the delegation's report, expressed satisfaction, and said he was impressed by how South Korean representatives prioritized the delegation's visit and put in "sincere efforts for their convenience", according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

The South Korean government invited the North to join the Games saying it was a chance at dialogue and rolling back tensions.

Japan secured its first ever Olympic victory in its third Olympic appearance, while the crowd went bonkers after Korea netted its first goal of the opening round.

But the North's participation has been undoubted PR success for the secretive regime and the inclusion of Kim Jong-un's sister in the Olympic delegation stunned the international community.

Most North Koreans "are unable to leave the totalitarian country, but [Ryom and Kim] have competed around the world", Elise reported last month.

"I think the effects on Pyeong Chang have probably been tremendous and it will be interesting to see what happens to that region after the Olympics end".

Ryom Tae Ok and Kim Ju Sik proved why they were the only North Korean athletes to qualify for the PyeongChang Games.

They had been watching the hockey match between Japan and the unified team representing North and South Korea when he stood up to bust a few moves.
