The White House announced Wednesday that President Trump's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump will lead the U.S. Delegation for Pyeongchang's 2018 Winter Olympics closing ceremony.

Another senior administration official said the Ivanka Trump-led group is going to "reaffirm" the "close" relationship between the USA and South Korean governments, as well as cheer on American athletes and get to know the South Korean people.

After the event ended, Trump spoke with some of the South Korean athletes who were guests of the delegation and posed for selfies.

It was reported that U.S. Vice President Mike Pence had planned to meet a North Korean delegation that included Kim Yo-jong, the sister of its leader Kim Jong-un, during his visit here for the February 9 opening ceremony.

A mood of peace has been growing since the North sent its athletes to the Olympics and invited Moon to Pyongyang for what could be the third inter-Korean summit, after years of chilled relations due to its continued missile and nuclear provocations.

"New US sanctions will alert those who are illegally trading with North Korea and therefore bolster the worldwide community to carry out resolutions from the UN Security Council", the South Korean foreign ministry said in a statement.

Moon met Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and Kim Yong Nam, North Korea's nominal head of state, a day after the opening ceremony and urged North Korea to do more to engage in a dialogue with the United States. She is expected to attend the games on Saturday before Sunday's closing ceremony.
