Mike Pence didn't snub North Koreans deliberately, officials say

The Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony, Tonight on KSBW 8!

Kim Jong Un, Trump imitators booted from PyeongChang Stadium

Pence was in close proximity to the North Korean party both at the VIP reception and later, watching the Opening Ceremony from Moon's box, which included Kim Yong Nam and leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong.

Mr Moon's spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said that Mr Kim's sister verbally delivered his offer during a lunch meeting with Mr Moon at Seoul's presidential palace. "The families are well connected and intensely loyal to the Kim family regime".

The meeting is so unprecedented and its announcement on Thursday was so sudden that rumours are already swirling it could open the door to much more - perhaps even an offer for Moon to travel to Pyongyang.

The Korean peninsula has been divided since a 1953 armistice ended the Korean War, and although relations between the North and South have warmed in recent weeks as the Olympics approached, second-generation despot Kim Jong-un is known to have invested heavily in a growing army of computer hackers. Instead, they said, Kim simply wasn't seated in the area where Pence was receiving well-wishers.

The International Olympic Committee confirmed on Friday that there was indeed a cyberattack on Friday's Opening Ceremony for the PyeongChang Olympics.

North Korea's ice hockey player Hwang Chung Gum and South Korea's bobsledder Won Yun-jong served as flag-bearers.

"And to recognize that whatever images may emerge against the powerful backdrop and idealism of the Olympics, North Korea has to accept change", Pence told reporters at a South Korean naval base before heading to the Olympic Games venue.

Yet despite the seemingly friendly overtures, North Korea has not put away its guns.

Any summit between the two still-officially warring Koreas would be a coup for Moon, who has been pushing for a diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes.

BLOCK: Russian athletes marched behind the Olympic flag since they're barred from flying their own or hearing their anthem at these games.

Moon hoped to use the Olympics to ease tensions and North Korea agreed to send high-profile officials as well as athletes.

The Olympian converted to the Catholic faith alongside her mother in 2008 after they came in contact with local nuns and Catholic organizations through her personal physician - also a Catholic - who was treating her for knee injuries.

A charm offensive that they've have done before at the Olympics in 2000, 2004 and 2006 - which as I mentioned earlier this week - it would just be a matter of eight months after the 2006 winter Olympics that North Korea tested their first nuclear bomb.

"But we will have a full report and, I guess, it will be made public".
