In his message, Kim Jong Un was quoted as saying, "I am ready to meet President Moon at an early date".

Kim is now retired from competitive skating, but the 27-year-old has served as an ambassador for the 2018 Winter Olympics in her home country of Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in had "virtually accepted" North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's invitation to Pyongyang, officials said on Saturday, making way for a first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade. "I request you visit North Korea at your earliest convenience".

The players shook hands with South Korean President Moon but Kim did not offer her hand. "North Korea dialogue is necessary to improve inter-Korea ties", the office also said.

South Korea has been using the Pyeongchang Games to break the ice with the reclusive North, which has been trading nuclear threats with the United States recently.

The meeting could be a prelude to a summit between leaders from the two countries, and Moon has already said he is willing to travel to Pyongyang to meet Kim Jong-un.

"The two Koreas may have the same ethnic background, but have gone totally separate ways for such a long time without barely any interaction, so there can be misunderstandings over trivial things", he told Reuters.

ABC, CBS and Fox together delivered a 6.0 rating, according to Nielsen ratings released Saturday morning.

And don't even point at badges depicting the North's former leaders which are pinned to every North Korean visitor's chest.

The North Koreans - Kim Yong Nam and Kim Yo jong - were also in the box, seated in a row behind Pence.

"Donald Trump" and "Kim Jong Un" were thrown out of the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea- no that is definately not true. Her visit to the Blue House is also the first in over eight years by a senior North Korean official.

These officials said that while Pence did not greet Kim Yong Nam, he didn't deliberately skip over him.

The athletes elicited a standing ovation by most leaders in the VIP box, including Moon and Kim's sister. "And that's the spirit of sports, peace".

But it could threaten to sow division between Moon, who has long argued for engagement with the nuclear-armed North to bring it to the negotiating table, and US President Donald Trump, who a year ago traded personal insults and threats of war with Kim.

Fred Warmbier attended the opening ceremony as the vice president's guest. The entire event at the Blue House took two hours and 50 minutes.

Most of the members of the South Korean team, ranked 22nd in the world before the Olympics, have played together since 2013.

Some North Korean experts believe tough United Nations sanctions that are cutting off most of the isolated North's sources of revenue have added pressure on Pyongyang to engage further with Seoul. She placed the folder on the table in front of her before the meeting started.

The handwritten invitation was delivered by Mr Kim's influential sister, Kim Yo-jong, at a landmark meeting in the presidential palace in Seoul, as the Winter Olympics opened. In 2016, he created the new agency and put himself in charge of it.

"The distance Between Pyongyang and Seoul has become closer in our hearts", Kim Yo-jong wrote. Will the North Korean cheerleading team?

When asked if his commitment to the denuclearization of North Korea is personal because his father served in the Korean War, Pence responded, "The whole global community is committed, with a few exceptions, to denuclearization of the Korean peninsula". Kim Song-hye has taken part in numerous negotiations between the two Koreas.

A large percentage of the North Korean Olympics contingent - which now totals 492 people - is made up of women, including those with prominent public roles, like hockey players and cheerleaders.
