Are Pence and Tillerson 'Signaling' about Direct Talks with Pyongyang?

She will be joining the country's ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong Nam.

The moment will be emotionally uplifting, raising hopes of reconciliation and reduced tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Kim Yo Jong is the youngest daughter of the North's late leader Kim Jong Il, who had multiple wives.

While the games sponsor Samsung Electronics has donated 4,000 "Olympic edition" handsets of its flagship Galaxy Note 8 device to be distributed among athletes and IOC officials free of charge, a Pyeongchang organizing committee spokeswoman told AFP that "North Korean and Iranian athletes will be excluded because of existing UN sanctions" against the two countries.

Kim and his wife, Ri Sol Ju, arrived by limousine and stepped out onto a red carpet.

U.S., but the North is not yet believed to have the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile. He highlighted his earlier announcement that the U.S. would continue to intensify what he called a "maximum pressure campaign" and keep it in place until North Korea abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

The idea is that Kim Jong Un would understand that this was not be the start of an all-out attack, and he is not suicidal, so he would take his medicine, and the message that the United States is serious.

North Korea last tested a missile in November, 2017.

She's often seen in the background of her powerful brother's public inspections, silently taking notes, holding bouquets of flowers from admirers or removing herself from the camera's gaze altogether.

The parade was not broadcast live on television and international media were barred from covering the event.

The parade began at 10:00 a.m. Pyongyang time, a diplomatic source with deep knowledge of North Korea's activities told CNN.

In meetings with government leaders, military officials and U.S. service members, Pence said he wants to make sure the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics don't distract from the DPRK's human rights abuses and nuclear program.

The international sanctions could bar Olympic organizers and sponsors from providing North Korean athletes with certain perks that hundreds of other Olympians will receive. As Mr Kang puts it, "North Koreans can come to the party, but they should do their own thing".

Aides to Pence also denied the vice president ever supported the practice, which has been rejected by medical and psychological professional organizations.

Images taken at the parade showed a procession of trucks carrying soldiers and military personnel passing large crowds, followed by a contingent of tanks.

Multilateral sanctions have cut mineral, garment and seafood exports, which had accounted for about one-third of the country's $3 billion annual export revenue.

Besides the cheering group, the North has sent to the games an orchestra as well as 22 athletes competing in 3 sports and 5 disciplines, in an apparent show of reconciliation.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visits the national science centre in this photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang on January 12, 2018. He also participated in a briefing at Japan's Ministry of Defense on the threat. Several shots hit buildings in the South, and a North Korean guard briefly ran across the border as he pursued the defector.
