The cracks in the trilateral alliance between the United States, Japan, and South Korea - allies who've shown a united front in hopes of denuclearizing North Korea - are starting to show. The North also faces ever-tightening global sanctions after it conducted a fresh nuclear test a year ago and a series of missile tests. He's a huge favorite to take the gold medal in South Korea.

North Korea's delegation - led by Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong - arrived to a sea of press in South Korea on Friday.

He is due to meet the North Korean delegation for talks on Saturday according to Yonhap.

She was born in 1987 and is 30 years old. "Our president wants to change our country to be a communist country right now", Thasik Park said.

White House officials briefing reporters travelling with the vice president said it would be fair to say that both Pence and the North Koreans rebuffed Moon's efforts to facilitate a meeting between North Korea and the U.S.

Moon's office said he told Abe that the talks between the Koreas would not disrupt worldwide efforts to deal with North Korea's nuclear program. The building has honored the Olympics before, including a similar display for the Rio Opening Ceremony in 2016.

Moon said improved relations between the Koreas may be a step toward resolving the nuclear standoff.

Reviving inter-Korean talks is key to the polices of Moon, who says South Korea should be in the driver's seat in global efforts to deal with the North's nuclear threat.

Later, North and South Korean athletes both entered the Olympic Stadium together, waving flags of unity - the long-time dream, at least in theory, of many Koreans in the North and South. Competition began with some curling even before the Opening Ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea, but now it's time to look ahead to the first full slate of action.

North and South Korea are still technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce.

US Vice-President Mike Pence was sitting nearby when the gesture took place.

Kim Yo Jong is the first of her family to visit South Korea in decades. That logo, which was plastered on soda cans and billboards for almost half a century and bore an uncanny resemblance to the center of the South Korean flag, is probably still the one that anyone older than 10 thinks of when they think of Pepsi.
