Here Are Highlights From The Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

12 February 2018

Kim has captivated media attention and fascinated the public since her arrival on Friday. Hoping to discern what she's thinking, analysts pored over video of her eyes, and remarked on the tilt of her chin.

President Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations to South Korea for playing host a day before the Games began, but had been silent on the topic since.

"The US will not allow the propaganda charade by the North Korean regime to go unchallenged on the world stage", Pence tweeted on Saturday. The U.S. delegation numbers 244 but not all athletes participated due to their training or competition schedules.

Pence, by contrast, avoided speaking with North Korean officials Friday, and he and his wife did not stand, as most spectators did, when the athletes from both Koreas marched together under a flag representing a unified Korea. Look out for her on snowboarding.

The three-day Iraq Reconstruction Conference will showcase private sector investment opportunities and global support for Iraq. The statement noted Tillerson will visit Turkey to discuss regional and bilateral issues with senior Turkish officials.

On Friday, Pence said the US will be working to come up with a peaceful solution, but added that it will oppose talks between South and North Korea that don't involve the North dismantling its nuclear program.

Kim was honored as the final torch bearer to light the Olympic cauldron for this year's games, after two athletes from the inter-Korean women's hockey team, one skater from North Korea and another from the South, passed the flame along. Kim Yo Jong offered an invitation from her brother for Moon to visit the North, in the strongest sign yet of an expanding diplomatic opening opposed by the U.S. Krueger's gold came despite an early fall.

The U.S., on the other hand, led by Trump and Pence, isn't making much of an effort to embrace all the recent attempts at diplomacy with North Korea.

The North Korean issue is especially emotional in South Korea because the peninsula, which had been one country for thousands of years, was arbitrarily cut in half at the end of World War II, in what was supposed to be a temporary division. They will then head to Seoul for joint performances on Monday and Wednesday.

The nuclear-armed North's delegation is the diplomatic highlight of an Olympics-driven rapprochement on the divided peninsula. The North and the United States were also holding a series of high-level talks on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programmes.

It was the USA that appeared to be the one left in the cold, especially after the sister of the North Korean dictator extended an invitation from her brother for Moon to visit the North.

As Pence sat with South Korean President Moon Jae-In amid a heavy blanket of security that delayed many fans from getting to the venue for the start, the show was stolen by the colorful group of North Korean cheerleaders dispatched south of the border by leader Kim Jong Un.

North Korea has made clear that it does not intend to negotiate away its nuclear and missile programs in return for relief from worldwide sanctions. It's anyone's guess as to when we might learn what's behind the facade.
