Kim's sister says hopes to see Moon in N. Korea

Adam Edelmanm Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympic Games

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and South Korea marched together under a unified Korean flag during the opening ceremony of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium in PyeongChang, South Korea, Feb. 9, 2018.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have risen sharply over the past year, as Kim Jong Un has made rapid progress in his nuclear weapons program and has made clear the program is being developed with the American threat in mind.

At the opening ceremony, Pence and the North Koreans, who were seated in the row behind him, studiously ignored each other, even as Moon and his wife turned around to greet the North Koreans warmly.

But away from the spotlight, these two unwanted guests, men dressed as North Korea supreme leader and the United States president, were escorted away from the premises.

"President Moon said that US-North Korea talks should be held in the near future to improve inter-Korean relations, and asked the North to take a proactive approach to the matter", Kim Eui-kyeom said.

Pita Taufatofua, who competed in taekwondo in the 2016 Rio Olympics and will compete in cross-country skiing in Pyeongchang, carries the flag of Tonga during the opening ceremony.

The invitation, delivered by Kim's visiting sister Kim Yo Jong, said Kim was willing to meet the South's leader "at the earliest date possible", said a spokesman for the presidential Blue House.

Speaking on his way home from the Winter Olympics in South Korea, Mr Pence said there was "no daylight" between the two allies on the issue.

New Research Suggests That Food Can Fuel or Inhibit Cancer Growth
Dr George Poulogiannis , Dr Michel Wagner and PhD student Marc Olivier Turgeon worked on the research that took place at the ICR. ER-positive breast cancer, diagnosed in two-thirds of breast cancer patients, is fueled by the presence of estrogen in the body.

His decision to dispatch his sister to the games is all the more significant since Kim Jong Un himself hasn't set foot outside North Korea or met a single head of state since he assumed power upon the death of their father, Kim Jong Il, in late 2011.

"The grievances that the world has about North Korea are very legitimate".

They were also not able to get close to the VIP area, where US Vice-President Mike Pence and the real Kim's sister Kim Yo Jong were in attendance.

Moon apparently cited the conditions necessary for an inter-Korean summit. The rhetoric war between North Korea and the Trump administration hasn't skipped a beat in Pyeongchang.

Otto Warmbier died in June 2017, 18 months after he was taken in to North Korean custody for allegedly stealing a poster.

"Obviously this game had more meaning than just a game", said Danelle Im, a Canadian who plays for the Korean team, "so it was great to be a part of it".

North Korean Jong Su Hyon had one of Korea's three shots in the opening period.

The guests, including leaders of North and South, were invited to pour melted white chocolate on top - and the barbed wire would dissolve.
