Once inside, the two impersonators caused a stir when they passed the press box, causing journalists to leave their seats and chase after them.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the "Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times".

"We hope that these Olympic Games will open a window of opportunity to allow for a strong diplomatic engagement aiming at the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", said Guterres.

"The South Korean government is focused on hosting peaceful Olympics and says "yes" to everything North Korea wants", the editorial said. She also repeated the invitation directly to Moon to visit at a time convenient to him, he said.

"Through their apology and admission of their mistake, we have reached our goal and the offence against the Islamic Republic's athletes and nation has been rectified", the state news agency IRNA quoted Soltanifar as saying.

When Kim Jong-il held the first inter-Korean summit in 2000, he used the title of chairman of the National Defense Commission.

"We are here today because the Pyeongchang Olympics, a pure sports events, has turned into propaganda for the North Korean regime, Kim Jong Un's regime, that is against our will", said Kyung Hye Kim.

Moon apparently cited the conditions necessary for an inter-Korean summit.

The PyeongChang Olympic Stadium ushered in the 23rd Winter Games on Friday with a glittering opening ceremony that saw athletes from both South and North Korea, two countries who have technically been at war for 65 years, marching together under a unified Korean flag showing a blue, borderless country.

Moon's desire to engage North Korea was in contrast to his U.S. ally. He will host her and the other senior North Korean officials for lunch on Saturday. But interestingly, Pence also suggested that during their bilateral discussions he and Moon had agreed on terms for moving forward.

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. Those photos quickly went viral.

The combined teams - dressed in white and introduced simply as "Korea" - entered the stadium under the blue-and-white "unification flag", which shows the peninsula as one.

Jarrod Agen, the vice president's spokesman, on Saturday tweeted a recap of Pence's visit so far.

North Korea conducted its largest nuclear test past year and said it had developed a missile capable of carrying a warhead to the United States.
