Winter Olympics kick off in South Korea

Winter Olympics kick off in South Korea

"I am very confident, as President Trump is, that President Moon will continue to stand strongly with us in our extreme-pressure campaign", Pence told NBC in an interview, maintaining all options were open to deal with the crisis. But the prospect could sow division between the dovish leader, who has long argued for engagement with the nuclear-armed North to bring it to the negotiating table, and US President Donald Trump, who last year traded personal insults and threats of war with Kim. Vermont is by far the leader in terms of athletes per capita, sitting at over two for every 100,000 residents.

Mr Bach lauded the joint march of the two Koreas as a "powerful message".

At the opening ceremony Friday night, Pence was seated in front of Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un's sister and part of the North Korean delegation.

One of the first setbacks occurred after the International Olympic Committee banned Russia from participating in the events after the discovery of "systemic manipulation" of anti-doping rules in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

The invasion came just after the two Koreas had marched into the stadium behind the blue-and-white unification flag, possibly indicating the stunt was politically motivated.

Vice President Mike Pence was "encouraged" by his talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-In at the Winter Olympics, insisting that Moon's outreach to North Korea had not undermined bilateral relations with the U.S.

It was not immediately known what they said, but all of them were smiling.

Anyone whose heart beats for peace on the peninsula extremely expects North and South Korea use this opportunity to set the stage for a rapprochement and hopefully a final reunification.

U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn, for one, was impressed.

Despite the vast political divides between their countries, North and South Korean athletes are coming together for the sake of the Winter Olympics-and the visual evidence so far is heartwarming.

Instead, his sister, Kim Yo Jong, attended and met with other world leaders, including South Korean President Moon Jae-in. Watch as the teams vie to put their stones as close as possible to the centre and block your opponent from doing the same.
