  • North Korean ski coach: It's an 'honor' to compete in Olympics

Vice President Mike Pence was "encouraged" by his talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-In at the Winter Olympics, insisting that Moon's outreach to North Korea had not undermined bilateral relations with the U.S.

Behind them all, in the back row and wearing fur hats against the cold, were North Korea's President Kim Young Nam and Kim Yo Jong, the sister of the leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un, silently watching.

Computers at the Main Press Center and the PyeongChang Olympic website were also attacked by an unidentified hacker hours before the opening ceremony. In a first for the Winter Olympics, North and South Korea athletes are playing on a joint women's hockey team.

Trumo and Kim Jong Un impersonators make an appearance.

During Pence's visit, Moon assured the vice president he would tell the North Koreans clearly that they would not get economic or diplomatic concessions for just talking, only for taking concrete steps toward denuclearization, the newspaper said.

CPI (M) state secretary G.Ramakrishnan said, "This will set a wrong example, as she was convicted by the court in a corruption case".


But Moon has also said that he would be willing to meet Kim only if he received assurances from the North that it would help resolve the crisis over the North's nuclear weapons program.

If Moon accepts Kim's offer to come to the North, it will be the third summit meeting between the two Koreas. "It was done in hockey, so why not with us?" he said.

While it's unclear whether the displays of unity will reduce tensions between the two, with North Korea testing several missiles and making world headlines for its provocative acts in the past few months, we can still dream. Last week, the United States said it would ramp up sanctions.

The first true night of Olympic competition in PyeongChang seems to have held up pretty well for NBC. The official added that Pence does not believe that the invitation dilutes the toughness of the United States pressure campaign on North Korea.

North Korea's Alpine skiing coach says it's an "honor" to compete at the Pyeongchang Olympics, though he doesn't expect much from any of his three athletes.
