"Where have I seen that before?"

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's younger sister took her place among dignitaries from around the world, including U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, at the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Friday in an unprecedented visit to South Korea.

Some set fire to a North Korean flag while others chanted "Let's tear Kim Jong Un to death" as they ripped posters of his face to shreds. "So the maximum pressure campaign is going to continue and intensify".

"There is no daylight between the United States, the Republic of Korea, and Japan on the need to continue to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically until they abandon their nuclear ballistic missile program", Pence told reporters on the flight back to the US. It was a sharp, but possibly fleeting, contrast with many months of rising tensions connected to the North's continued development of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.

The 19 other North Korean athletes participating in the games are three cross-country skiers; two short-track speed skaters; a pair of figure skaters; and 12 female hockey players who helped form the Koreas' first-ever joint Olympic team with South Korean players.

He added that the officials spoke about inter-Korean relations under a "friendly atmosphere" at the Presidential Blue House. The statement from the Ministry of Unification came after the North Korean delegation concluded its three-day visit.

Rather than aid the administration in reminding the world that North Korea is a violent and repressive country, the media unnecessarily bolstered the message of a regime that has been threatening to destroy the USA for decades.

"She (Kim Yo Jong) is not charming, she is a dictator's sister", Laila said."She is not looking after North Korean people".

North Korea's state news agency said on Sunday its delegation sent to the Winter Olympics held "frank and candid" talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in but there was no mention of the North's invitation to Moon to Pyongyang for a summit. The South hosts 28,500 USA troops, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean war.

Kim Yo-jong arrived at Cheong Wa Dae carrying a blue folder with a letter from her brother that bore the official North Korean emblem. It warned against agreeing to talks before North Korea scrapped its nuclear program, saying it would only "benefit the enemy". While South Korea hasn't suspended the joint military exercises, it has agreed to delay them this year.

It's still not known when the meeting could happen, but some analysts suggest a good guess is August 15, the day the Korean peninsula was liberated from the Japanese army in 1945, marked by both Koreas as a national holiday.
