Pence's personal guest at the games will be Fred Warmbier, the father of Otto Warmbier, an American who died past year days after his release from captivity in North Korea.

In January 1968, Kim Yo Jong's grandfather, founding North Korean president Kim Il Sung, sent a squad of North Korean commandos to Seoul who tried unsuccessfully to kill then-president Park Chung-hee.

Her arrival on Kim Jong Un's private jet with a coterie of 22 officials was broadcast live on South Korean television.

Even before the Winter Olympics kicks off in South Korea this week, the event had already delivered an unexpected geopolitical dividend. S. pressure campaign by expelling North Korean "financial facilitators and trade reps".

The work-around showed the host had adopted the principle that "no one should be uncomfortable with the person sitting next to them", with those from worldwide organisations playing a buffer role, the official said.

Lookalikes of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un who caused a stir at Friday's Pyeongchang Olympics opening ceremony have thanked organisers for their tender loving care.

Moon's desire to engage North Korea was in contrast to his US ally.

Pence is viewing the short-track competition, in which eight Americans are participating.

The North, meanwhile, insisted it has "no intention to meet the USA side".

Moon responded to the invitation by suggesting the two countries "should accomplish this by creating the right conditions", adding that talks between North Korea and the United States were also needed, and requested that North Korea be more active in talking with the U.S., according to Kim Eui-kyeom. US officials have grown increasingly dire in their warnings about the North's march toward developing an operational nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capable of reaching the continental U.S.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is also going to have lunch with the pair - Kim Yong Nam and Kim Yo-Jong - on Saturday. Pence waited outside while Moon spoke because he was late, according to a spokesman for South Korea's presidential Blue House.

South Korea says the artists will return to the North on Tuesday by a land route.

A giant dove of peace lit up the night sky, famous South Korean singers sang John Lennon's "Imagine" and, most significantly of all, athletes from North and South Korea walked in unison for the first time in 11 years.

The discussions from Saturday's meeting weren't immediately released.

Attention is on how much Moon will urge the North to improve inter-Korean ties and to abandon its nuclear and missile programs.

The officials toasted with the Korean liquor "soju" and were served buckwheat and potato pancakes, dried pollock soup, grilled halibut and other dishes. A group of 280 North Koreans arrived in on Wednesday to support athletes from the two sides at the Games.

Mr Kim's pretender wore the mercurial and isolated leader's black glasses and looked the part with a young, round face coupled with the awkward haircut sported by the real despot.

Pence missed the group photograph organized by South Korea on Friday, shortly before the games began, and was not pictured with world leaders, including North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam.

The luncheon also includes Choe Hwi, chairman of the North's National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs.
