Kim Yo Jong also attended Saturday's hockey match.

According to a tweet by the Washington Post's Tokyo bureau chief, Ms Kim left a note at the palace expressing hope that "Pyongyang and Seoul will become closer in the heart of Koreans" and for "unification and prosperity in the near future".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said South Korea is viewing hosting the Olympics as a way to improve diplomatic relations with North Korea. It would be the first summit in more than a decade between Korean leaders.

After all the politics, Pyeongchang may soon be able to return its focus to - what is everyone here for again? - the sports.

Even so, there's also cautious optimism, or curiosity at least. When I'm finished I can look behind me and see how many medals I have.

Moon had said "let's create conditions to make it happen", the official said, an indication that he was likely to accept the invitation.

South Korea President Moon introduced the slogan for the 2018 Olympics as "Peace in Motion".

After the game Saturday, the team stood on the ice as Moon, Kim Yo-jong, IOC president Thomas Bach and other government officials perched on the bench for a short meeting.

The ceremony's signature moment delivered another flash of unity and deft political stage-managing, too.

Gold medal winners will not hear Russia's anthem but instead, the Olympic one and they cannot wave Russian flags inside Olympic venues.

A dozen North Korean players were added to the team in January - awfully late in the game.

February 9th, 2018 - Date of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

On page two it printed seven more of the opening ceremony and its representatives' meetings and handshakes with Moon, whom it described as president. You can't get more primed for the Olympics than that.

The organizers of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics said its servers were hacked by an unidentified attacker during the opening ceremony the previous day.

50 - Miles the city of Pyeongchang is from the demilitarized zone that separates the south from North Korea.

Moon's office provided conflicting accounts of whether he would go to Pyongyang.

The last summit was in 2007 when then South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun traveled to Pyongyang to meet with Kim Jong Il, the current leader's father. "Where have I seen that before?"

In a passionate statement, the hermit state's news organisation spoke of the triumph of their co-operation with the South.

Organizing committee spokeswoman Nancy Park said the defense ministry and a cybersecurity team were investigating the outage that occurred Friday night. That, predictably, was the image that North Korea's main newspaper put on its front pages.

Moon reportedly responded saying "an early resumption of dialogue between the United States and the North is needed also for the development of the South-North Korean relationship". Some 28,500 U.S. servicemembers are based in the South. The Koreas are technically still at war, as a truce - and not a peace treaty - ended combat between the countries in 1953. South Korea wants a northern neighbour without nukes; North Korea vows to keep its weapons until the United States discards its "hostile" policies against the country. Pence carried a similar message.

"They have to abandon their nuclear ambitions".
