Pence says NK must give up nukes before talks

US Vice-President Mike Pence rains on Olympic parade with Korea team snub

Just before the opening ceremony, Kim Yong Nam attended a dinner for visiting foreign dignitaries hosted by Moon.

North Korea has held a military parade in a show of strength on the eve of the Winter Olympics in South Korea. It was the only documentation on the table on the North Korean side.

The United States has repeatedly pressed China, North Korea's most significant trading partner and main ally, to do more to rein in Pyongyang's nuclear and missile ambitions.

The North also has words for food and everyday necessities that sound completely different to those used in the South.

You can see some images of Kim at the meeting with Moon below.

The sight of North and South Koreans marching together for the first time in a decade was the culmination of months of work by Seoul.

Abe said he had confirmed with Moon the need to maintain strong pressure on North Korea to get it to abandon its nuclear and missile programmes, reiterating Tokyo's stance that "talk for the sake of talk is pointless".

Neither Trump nor Kim were present at the opening ceremonies for the 2018 Winter Games.

"He is not a politician but a typical technocrat who has spent decades handling worldwide relations", said Yang.

Moon is desperate to use the games as an opportunity to restore regular communication with North Korea and eventually pull it into talks over resolving the worldwide standoff over its nuclear program. Pence was also at the dinner and reportedly refused to shake the elderly North Korean's hand.

AP Q&A: What it Means That Stocks Are in a 'Correction'
Ten-year Treasury yields fluctuated near their four-year highs, while the yen found traction as a haven from the stock turmoil. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.43-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq , a 1.36-to-1 ratio favoured advancers.

According to the South's Unification Ministry, Kim Yong Nam was born in February 1928 in Pyongyang.

"It is absolutely necessary for the North and the United States to engage in talks at an early date", he cited Moon as saying.

Moon is expected to meet with Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong on Saturday at the Blue House.

Lookalikes of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un who caused a stir at Friday's Pyeongchang Olympics opening ceremony have thanked organisers for their tender loving care.

Kim Yo Jong is the first member of the ruling Kim family bearing the bloodline of the sacred Mount Paektu, a centerpiece of the North's idolization and propaganda campaign, to cross the border into the South since the 1950-53 Korean War.

He also demanded South Korea remove statues of comfort women that have been installed in several countries in addition to South Korea, including the United States, Australia and Germany, Kyodo news agency reported. Mike Pence, the U.S. vice-president, is due to be present and there is a suggestion that the USA felt he might appear isolated had few of America's other allies turned up.

Yo Jong, who was appointed a senior official in the ruling Workers' party past year, was pictured being ushered around Incheon International Airport in South Korea by security.

The sister of the North Korean leader has arrived in South Korea, dressed in a black coat and absorbing a barrage of camera flashes.

Buried under the attention that Kim's proximity to Pence generated was that she was seated next to 90-year-old Kim Yong-nam, who is an even higher ranking government official than Yo-jong.
