Kim Jong Un's sister stealing show at Olympics

2018 Winter Olympics

The ceremony was also attended by North Korean ceremonial leader Kim Yong Nam and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, as well as US Vice President Mike Pence.

Russian Federation has also denied launching any hacking attacks on the Pyeongchang Olympics, where its team is formally banned following the revelation of systemic doping.

The lunch Saturday at Seoul's presidential mansion between Moon and Kim Yo Jong is the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years.

The men, who were impersonating Trump and Kim Jong-un attended the opening ceremony. The overture follows heightened tensions over the North's missile tests.

"It is absolutely necessary for the North and the United States to engage in talks at an early date", he cited Moon as saying.

At the opening ceremony, Pence and the North Koreans, who were seated in the row behind him, studiously ignored each other, even as Moon and his wife turned around to greet the North Koreans warmly.

And that folder? It turns out it contained a personal letter from Kim Jong Un to South Korea's president.

North Korean supporters cheer during the preliminary round of the women's hockey game between Switzerland and the united Korean team. And to the team's credit, the same answer always came: They're out there, we just can't tell who's who.

At the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the theme of which is "peace in motion", North and South Korea have been celebrating unity, despite the fact that each country has traditionally interpreted that concept very differently.

The North has sent almost 500 people to the Pyeongchang Games, including officials, athletes, artists and also a 230-member state-trained cheering group after the Koreas agreed to a series of conciliatory gestures for the games.

Some 500 North Koreans, including 22 athletes, were in attendance during the opening ceremonies.

But as North Korea's brutal dictator, Kim's brother has ruled with an iron fist since coming to power, operating Nazi-style prison camps, repressing political opposition and even executing senior officers and his own family members in an effort to consolidate power. The North Koreans have invited Moon to visit Pyongyang in what would be the third inter-Korean summit talks since their 1945 division.

A White House official described the South Korean president as hopeful that there would be "some talks and socializing" between Pence and the North Koreans over the course of the weekend.

It wasn't until this week that the world learned Kim Yo Jong would join her nation's Olympic delegation.

In Pyeongchang, her presence is a major story line for reporters and the buzz on the street, with some in South Korea curious and accepting, while others are skeptical, if not downright cynical. The Swiss won 8-0.

Confirming the positive attitude this team projects, its coach, Sarah Murray, said this week, "We feel strangely calm given everything that is going on.

He sent the country's nominal head of state and also his sister Kim Yo Jong to Seoul and they would need to have something to show for it when they return home", Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korean expert at Seoul's Dongguk University and a security adviser to Moon, said.

The hardline USA policy is at odds with the more conciliatory approach towards the North favoured by South Korea. Warming ties between the Koreas could complicate Seoul's ties with Washington, which wants to maximize its pressures on Pyongyang.

"There were some issues that affected some of our non-critical systems last night for a few hours", said Sung, according to Reuters, before adding that authorities are working to figure out what exactly happened.
