Pence Avoids 'Interaction' with N.Korean Officials at Olympics

Watch the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony live online

It was a temporary gesture at a temporary location - PyeongChang Olympic Stadium, built specifically for these Games, will be torn down when they end - but it gave the Opening Ceremonies an air of permanent hope.

"The simple 'Korea' on their chests gave me a sense of unity that I had never thought of", Kim told The Korea Herald.

North and South Korea played in the same team for the first time in the women's ice hockey competition but were resoundingly beaten 8-0 by Switzerland on day one of the Pyeongchang Games.

Protests also marred the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, just 14 months after student demonstrations forced the South Korean government to enact major democratic reforms.

The unified ice hockey team for the Pyeongchang Olympics is a product of a landmark thaw between the rival Koreas following a year of high tensions over the nuclear-armed North's weapons ambitions.

Pence said Moon updated him about the meeting he had with North Korean officials and "both of us reiterated to each other tonight that we will continue to stand strong and work in a coordinated way to bring maximum economic and diplomatic pressure to bear on North Korea".

Bjoergen, world champion in the event, claimed gold in Vancouver in 2010 and again in Sochi four years later.

The Olympic Winter Games kicked off on Friday in PyeongChang, South Korea with an opening ceremony themed around peace.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused".

The Winter Olympics feature the best in the United States, but not all states are created equal when it comes to producing Olympic talent.

Landing without a valid visa, he was interrogated for five hours by North Korean customs officials and fined US$500 (S$664).

North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam, Choe Hwi, the chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son-gwon, the head of the North's state agency in charge of inter-Korean affairs, were also in attendance.

Moon urged the North Koreans to talk with Washington as soon as possible.
