Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un impersonators ejected from Opening Ceremony

The prospect of talks comes after months of tension between Pyongyang, Seoul and Washington over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, with U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un trading insults and threats of destruction amid tightening sanctions from the United Nations.

Seating plans shown on television had Pence seated directly opposite the North's Kim Yong Nam at the reception in Pyeongchang.

"You went through a lot of trouble braving the cold until late", he told them.

After sitting at a table, Kim Yo Jong placed a blue document folder in front of her.

Participants from the South Korean side were Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, Culture, Sports and Tourism Minister Do Jong-hwan and 10 other government, parliamentary officials and experts.

The discussions from Saturday's meeting weren't immediately released.

Sputnik: North Korean leader reportedly invited South Korean president to Pyongyang. There's even speculation of a summit between Kim and Moon.

"The Olympic outreach is likely meant to widen the already obvious rift between the U.S. (under Trump the ultra) and SK (under Moon the committed engager)", Robert Kelly of Pusan National University wrote on Twitter. "No one else in leadership can bring messages directly to Kim Jong Un". The Koreas could potentially talk about a South Korean special envoy meeting Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang or even a summit between Moon and Kim. She is the first member of the North's longtime ruling family to visit the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in received an invitation to visit the North during the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years.

Pence was reported to have said he reached the new understanding with South Korean President Moon Jae In, who has been pushing for diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, in two substantive conversations during his visit to South Korea. They were stopped and most were killed near the palace, which was newly rebuilt in 1991.

Specifically, Jamie Anderson defended her Sochi gold medal in the event by taking the gold on Sunday evening. However, it is still Norway atop the medal counter, and it is largely because of one event in particular.

But Pence was acutely aware that by rebuffing a potential opening with Pyongyang, he was also rebuffing Moon, thereby risking widening the rift in the U.S.

Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sat nearby, looking expressionless.

Pence had said they would "see what happens" when asked about a potential meeting earlier in the week, but the North's foreign ministry shot down any chance of talks on Thursday. In it, Kim Jong Un highlighted several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles, which were successfully flight tested three times a year ago and could reach deep into the US mainland when perfected.

After the threats, missile launches and general nastiness from the North over the previous year, there is still a lot of anger, fear and skepticism in the South.

But in an interview in the Washington Post on Sunday, Pence said he and Moon had agreed on terms for more diplomatic engagement with North Korea, first with Seoul and then possibly leading to direct talks with Washington without pre-conditions.

South Korea is clearly an important ring in the US-Japan-South Korea chain.

Pence claimed there was no daylight between the US and South Korea on the goal of North Korean denuclearization, without acknowledging that they disagree on the path toward that goal.

"Now is not the time to postpone U.S".

Kim Yo Jong and her delegation spent three days dining with top government officials, watching the opening ceremony and cheering for the united women's ice hockey team the two Koreas have fielded at this Olympics. "I like the reconciliatory mood and I have high expectations", said Kim Sang-yoon, a 44-year-old businessman who drove almost five hours to see the opening ceremony with his wife and two sons.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has played its part in getting North and South Korea together for the Pyeongchang Games, the body's president said - and now it is time for politics to take over.
