North Korea initially had no athletes entered after its Olympic committee missed a confirmation deadline for a pair of skaters who had qualified to compete in the games.

The two Koreas are still technically at war after the 1950-53 conflict on the Korean peninsula ended in a ceasefire and not a truce. During their meeting, she invited him to visit North Korea.

The South's Unification Ministry said steps to improve ties would be led by the two Koreas, but with the support of the global community.
