Pence Insists 'There Is No Daylight' In Intensifying North Korea Pressure

11 February 2018, 05:16 | Lucy Hill

After arriving at the South's ultramodern Incheon International Airport- the North's flagship airline is subject to sanctions - she traveled to Pyeongchang for the opening ceremony, where the North and South Korean athletes marched together behind a blue-and-white "unification" flag for the first time in more than a decade.

Mr. Warmbier is in South Korea for the Games and earlier this week appeared with Vice President Mike Pence during a meeting with North Korean defectors.

The spectacle was greeted with apparent joy by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his guest, Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

US Vice President Mike Pence, who was seated next to Moon, stared ahead as the ceremony unfolded.

But away from the spotlight, these two unwanted guests, men dressed as North Korea supreme leader and the USA president, were escorted away from the premises.

Internal internet and wifi systems crashed at about 7:15 pm (1015 GMT or 6:15 pm Philippine time) on Friday and were still not back to normal at midday on Saturday, Games organisers said.

South Korean television is showing a smiling President Moon Jae-in entering a reception room and shaking hands with North Korean delegates, including leader Kim Jong Un's sister.

There has been a dramatic cooling of tensions on the Korean peninsula in the past two months and Moon has made it clear he hopes the rapprochement can continue after the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang ends.

PYEONGCHANG-GUN, SOUTH KOREA - FEBRUARY 09: The Olympic cauldron is lit during the Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on February 9, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea. And like the ceremony, North and South leaders spent long moments in close proximity.

Pence and the North Koreans have been an awkward presence at the Games to say the least.

During the bilateral talks over lunch, neither side made mention of the North Korean nuclear issue, which is attracting worldwide attention as a major security concern, according to a presidential office source.

Moon sees the Games as an opportunity to restore regular communication with North Korea and eventually pull it into talks over resolving the global stand-off over its nuclear programme.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency also referred to Moon as president. The South Korean forward Han Soo-jin contributed the team's most aggressive attempt in the whole game, but her efforts were in vain with the puck hit the net "roof".
