The officials said it was fair to say both Pence and the North Koreans rebuffed South Korean President Moon Jae-in's efforts to facilitate a meeting between North Korea and the US.

Mr. Moon hasn't decided on whether or when to visit the North.

In North Korea's dynastic system, which upholds the Kim family's "bloodline" as a sacred leadership qualification, Kim Yo Jong wields a singular clout that can not be matched by any non-relative members of the elite, according to North Korea analysts.

"I leave here very confident that we are going to continue to do the things we've known have to be done to continue to pressure North Korea to abandon their nuclear ambitions".

Pence had told Seoul in advance that he would be dining with United States athletes soon afterwards "so his seat was not prepared accordingly", the spokesman said.

The Winter Olympics are underway after a vibrant opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea on Friday.

US Vice President Mike Pence snubbed the lunch and avoided any interaction with Ms Kim when they sat just feet apart at the spectacular opening ceremony.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is sending two competitors: his head of state, Kim Yong Nam and, more significantly, his sister, Kim Yo Jong, the first vice director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party.

USA officials have not ruled out the possibility that the vice president might meet a North Korean official at the Olympics.
