The 10 best moments from the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

11 February 2018

A Moon-Kim summit would mark the first time leaders of two countries have met in 11 years.

Great Britain were well down the field in 19th place, bagging one gold, one silver and one bronze but it was still their most successful Winter Olympics ever.

The invitation came during talks and a lunch Moon hosted with Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of the North Korean leader, at the presidential Blue House in Seoul.

"Kim Jong-un couldn't travel himself, he would have loved to do that, but he would have an arrest warrant in South Korea", Dr Petrov said. The sign reads: "Slave Olympics".

According to PyeongChang Organising Committee, the opening ceremony of 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea was the target of a cyber attack by unidentified hackers.

The unified Korean team snapped a selfie at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony. At each, he delivered messages meant to counter what he called North Korea's "charm offensive". "But what is more important than anything is that we are together".

Since diplomatic efforts are "almost zero", sources said this may signal a "calm before the storm", with North Korea quietly preparing its next moves for after the Olympics. "The world cannot turn a blind eye to the oppression & threats of the Kim regime". The two nations remain technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a cease-fire.

At 83, it would be understandable if Jack Keep and Lew Ewing didn't feel like braving a long-haul flight to the sub-zero temperatures of South Korea's Pyeongchang.

Inside the area 30,000 people, including a 200-strong North Korean cheerleading squad, watched the display in -3C temperatures, and were encouraged to bang drums given to them in an extreme weather kit to keep warm.

Tensions between the two soared a year ago as Pyongyang launched intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland and carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date.

He also called for the use of national currencies between Iran and Turkey for economic exchanges. Rouhani noted that Iran is ready to expand economic ties with Turkey.

During the bilateral talks over lunch, neither side made mention of the North Korean nuclear issue, which is attracting global attention as a major security concern, according to a presidential office source.

"At any moment, he could have gotten up and left and sat somewhere else, and then you would have had the image of North sitting in the box with South Korea and Japan", the official added.

Moon and the delegates agreed to maintain the conciliatory mood inspired by the Olympics and promote inter-Korea dialogue and cooperation, the presidential office said.

"Make no mistake about it, the United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea but, that being said, we hope for a better path", he said.
