North Korean figure skaters revel in starring role

Security was tight inside the press center

North Korean spectators and cheerleaders loudly applauded for the pair as they skated to the French-Canadian song "Je ne suis qu'une chanson" ("I am a song") during their performance at Gangneung Ice Arena.

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

South Korea decided Wednesday to pay the costs of hosting hundreds of North Koreans during the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, brushing aside concerns that could contravene international sanctions imposed over the North's nuclear and missile tests.

"Chosen based on criteria including family backgrounds, looks, skills and loyalty to the ruling Workers' Party, the cheerleaders must be over 1.6 meters tall, or about 5'3".

While the athletes stay in the Olympic athletes' village at the Pyeongchang Games, most of the rest of the North Korean delegation is staying at upmarket hotels.

According to the Yonhap, the issue of paying North Korea's Paralympic bills will be decided at a separate meeting of the council that will be held in the future. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo-jong, was in attendance.

"There have been no inconveniences whatsoever when it comes to the life here in the South area", Kim said in translated televised comments before the pair sped past the mixed zone where a horde of reporters were waiting for them.

A friendly chanting exchange between North Korean cheerleaders and South Korean fans was the only show on offer at the women's slalom on Wednesday as high winds wreaked more havoc on the Alpine skiing schedule.

"They are playing a good game, they scored one goal", Howard, who was living up his impersonation of Kim, told Reuters.

Presently, Kim Jong Un has ordered mass production of nuclear war-heads and warned the United States that North Korea's nuclear forces are real and not mere empty threats.

"They dragged me out and they kicked me in the shins and were shouting something really angrily in Korean".

The South Korean government will reduce the screening period for North Korean defectors from 180 days to a maximum of 90 days after entry to the South.

Pence was widely seen as having been outplayed by a "charm offensive" by the North Korean delegation, which included North Korea leader Kim Jong Un's sister Kim Yo Jong.

The sources say that Moon worked on Pence to hold a conversation with the North's delegation.
