"By sending the sister to South Korea and seeking a visit by the president, North Korea is probably trying to give the impression that it's taking the lead on dialogue", another source close to the government said. She also repeated the invitation directly to Moon to visit at a time convenient to him, he said.

The spokesman says Moon replied that the North and South should continue to work to build conditions so that a summit can take place.

They discussed a wide range of issues concerning inter-Korean relations in an amicable mood, according to the Blue House.

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.

"We are not giving any information on the itinerary of President Moon in advance", a spokesman told AFP. It figured to be because no matter which side of the border they were representing, Korean hockey players simply aren't ready to compete on such a big world stage.

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

The prospect of two-way talks between the Koreas, however, may not be welcomed by the United States. Washington has made clear that it will not have any contact with Pyongyang unless it embarks on substantial denuclearization.

Kim Yo Jong arrived in South Korea on Friday with Kim Yong Nam, the North's nominal head of state, for the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in the alpine resort town of Pyeongchang.

Overnights for Pyeongchang also topped the opening ceremony for the 2016 Rio Summer games, which brought in a 16.5 and were the lowest overnight rating for a summer Olympics opening ceremony since 1992.

Just before the opening ceremony, Kim Yong Nam attended a dinner for visiting foreign dignitaries hosted by Moon.

The "rare and historic" meeting began shortly after 11 a.m.at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. The entire event at the Blue House took two hours and 50 minutes.

That said, these officials said that if the North Koreans had approached Pence with pleasantries, he would have responded in kind. She placed the folder on the table in front of her before the meeting started.

An early shot by North Korea's Han Soojin might have made a statement, if not altered the outcome. Oh, and a fake Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, who were promptly escorted out of the stadium. In 2016, he created the new agency and put himself in charge of it. Kim Yo Jong's promotion a year ago brought her closer to the center of power in the isolated state. Greece always walks in first no matter where the games are held. But most - if not all of them - will be seeing their wealthy, democratic neighbor for the first time.

Mr Moon said the Koreas should "make it happen" and encouraged the north to return to negotiations with the US.

Turns out it wasn't a secret plan for the newly unified Korean women's hockey team to beat Switzerland.

The International Olympic Committee said pre-recorded footage of the drones was used instead.
