The North Korean delegation arrived in the South on Kim's private plane on Friday via Incheon global airport to attend the opening ceremony of the Pyongchang Winter Olympics where Seoul and Pyongyang are represented by joint teams.

Moon met with Kim Yo Jong and senior North Korean officials over lunch at Seoul's presidential palace in the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years. Analysts were expecting the sister to deliver a message to Moon, as any move toward a summit is likely to help maintain a temporary break in tensions on the peninsula after a year of missile and nuclear provocations.

In the meeting with North Korean officials, Moon stressed the need for the communist North to resume dialogue with the United States. If peace isn't imminent, a summit in Pyongyang between Moon and Kim Jong Un seems better to most than the threats of recent months. Athletes from the two countries marched side by side during the opening ceremony and have formed a joint women's hockey team.

The Kim sister put her hands to her mouth early in the match when North Korean forward Jong Su Hyon went close.

He said war had forged "the core of the bond" between the US and South Korea and that helps explains "why there is no daylight and there will be no daylight" between the two.

At the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the theme of which is "peace in motion", North and South Korea have been celebrating unity, despite the fact that each country has traditionally interpreted that concept very differently. I just hope I represented my team mates well.

Moon's office says the North Korean delegates were served traditional food from the Gangwon province, a mountainous coastal area that's home to the Olympic towns of Pyeongchang and Gangneung. The U.S will not allow the propaganda charade by the North Korean regime to go unchallenged on the world stage. It would be the first summit in more than a decade between Korean leaders. Asian media outlets quickly circulated photos of sprawling messages that Kim Yo Jong and Kim Yong Nam left in the Blue House's guest book.

The final was 8-0, though it hardly mattered.

"A strike also would not stem the threat of proliferation but rather exacerbate it, turning what might be a North Korean moneymaking endeavour into a vengeful effort meant to equip other bad actors against us".

"We don't want to speculate because we're still trying to find out what the root source is", said Nancy Park, a spokesperson for the Games organisers.

There was a palpable excitement in this isolated, rugged mountain town, as one of the poorest, coldest and most disgruntled parts of an otherwise prosperous South Korea kicked off two weeks of winter sports, Olympic spectacle and, just maybe, a bit of inter-Korean reconciliation.

The Winter Olympics still managed to dominate Friday's ratings although fans could read about the PyeongChang Opening Ceremony for hours before NBC shared the footage. "So the meetings take three times as long", Murray said. A White House official said they did not interact. The official added that Pence does not believe that the invitation dilutes the toughness of the United States pressure campaign on North Korea.

The last summit was held in October 2007 between Roh Moo-hyun and Kim Jong Il, the father of the current North Korean leader.

He had served on the National Security Council under Republican president George W. Bush and highly regarded across the political spectrum in Seoul, and had even been approved by South Korea.
