Kim Jong Un Has Invited The South Korean President To Pyongyang

What's on TV tonight? Shows to watch on Friday 9 February from Winter Olympics 2018 Opening Ceremony to Requiem

"We're not going to let the North Korea propaganda machine hijack the messaging of the Olympics", his communications director, Jarrod Agen, told the Washington Post.

Earlier Friday, Pence traveled to the South Korean Navy's 2nd Fleet Command in Pyeongtaek, 70 kilometers south of Seoul, to visit a memorial for the South Korean warship Cheonan, which was sunk by an explosion blamed on the North.

The pair were actually kicked out of last night's opening ceremony in South Korea's PyeongChang, but not before making a call for peace.

Kim Yo Jong, believed to be 30, arrived at the Games following a massive military parade and a speech by her brother touting their nation's "global military power".

Meanwhile, the DPRK media also lashed out at U.S. Vice President Mike Pence for his "anti-DPRK activities" when he was attending the opening ceremony, which Pyongyang said were aimed at disturbing the Olympics.

Farah in her tweet referenced the death of American Otto Warmbier, who died last year after being held prisoner for almost two years in North Korea.

The two Koreas marched in behind a white flag that was emblazoned with a map of the Korean peninsula depicted in blue.

This image released by Lucasfilm shows Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker in " Star Wars: The Last Jedi ", in theaters on December 15. But it was a little different when Lucas came to the set of " Solo: A Star Wars Story ".

The North Korean leader's sister's trip was particularly surprising, as she became the only member of the ruling family to have visited the South, since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

"The entire world is watching us here today and expectations on both Koreas are high", Moon said.

Later, he skipped a formal dinner at which he was due to share a table with North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam.

It was evident from the multiple pictures emerging from the event that Pence indeed made no discernible effort to acknowledge or engage with the North Korean delegation. Dozens of South Koreans at the airport tried to snap photographs of her on their mobile phones.

During the game, North Korea's cheering squad chanted "we are one" and sang reunification songs, even as Korean pop music played throughout the stadium.

The spokesman said Moon did not immediately agree to a meeting, adding that the two countries should continue to work on creating a political atmosphere that would make such a meeting feasible.
