"South Korea is a democracy, it has freedom of speech, and it is very important to remind the whole world that you can't let North Korea hijack these games using the cheerleaders and everything that they put out".

How much is a North Korean athlete worth?

The US is also committed to maintaining maximum pressure on the North until Pyongyang accepts the precondition.

Kim Ryon Hyang of North Korea competes.

"The cheerleaders were great, they were lovely and I wouldn't mind taking a few of them home", he said. Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sat nearby, looking expressionless.

All Fake Kim wants to do at these Games is meet some North Korean cheerleaders and spread a nice message, which seems kind of discordant from a Chinese-Australian guy who looks like a dictator. The North Koreans were in the room at the same time as Pence, an official said.

Costs for hosting the high-level official delegation which included Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, were paid for separately from the government budget, Baik added without disclosing details.

But the secretive state has sent 22 athletes, including apline skiers, to take part in the Olympics in South Korea as part of a charm offensive after months of bellicose rhetoric and provocative missile launches.

They are playing a good game, they scored one goal.

"We will continue to hold them to account on their appalling record of abuse of human rights of their own people", said Pence. Moon had earlier met Kim Yong Nam during a dinner he hosted for visiting dignitaries.

According to the Yonhap news agency, the mausoleum located in North Korea's Pyongyang, is the resting place of Kim's father as well as his grandfather, Kim-il Sung, both of whom have been declared as the "eternal leaders" of North Korea by the government.

He also said he didn't think he was in any danger, despite being "roughed" up by security.

You might recognise Howard from the opening ceremony, where he and a collaborator impersonating U.S. President Donald Trump were quickly removed from the stadium.

The Kim Jong Un lookalike made his way past the cheerleaders during a women's hockey showdown between the unified Korean team and Japan.
