Earthquake, high winds and risk on fire hits Pyeongchang Winter Olympics

But if the Trump administration objects, it "will put the U.S.in a very hard position in terms of public relations in South Korea", Mr. Han said.

Fireworks erupt as the Olympic Cauldron is lit during the Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on February 9, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

A private jet took off from Incheon airport in South Korea, carrying Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and the rest of the North's unprecedented deputation whose presence drew the spotlight away from sporting endeavor and raised uncomfortable questions for South Korea's allies.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in had "virtually accepted" North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's invitation to Pyongyang, officials said on Saturday, making way for a first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.

But Schoff said that by pouring cold water on hopes for better inter-Korean relations, Pence's stance could be viewed as critical of Moon's outreach to North Korea.

A spokeswoman for the Games said: "It was a Korean spectator and he was removed from the stadium as soon as he was taken off the stage". The Pences, seated next to Moon and just a row ahead of Kim and the North's 90-year-old nominal head of state, remained in their seats, unsmiling.

Many experts say Kim's overture is meant to use improved ties with Seoul as a way to weaken US -led worldwide sanctions toughened after its series of big weapons tests previous year that include its sixth and largest nuclear test explosion and three intercontinental ballistic missile launches.

The spokesman said Mr Moon also called for a quick resumption of dialogue between the United States and North Korea.

"We are honoured to have Intel drones playing several roles at the Olympic Games", said Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager, Intel Drone Group.

According to those who were at the venue to witness the scene, the North Korean cheerleaders did not stop chanting - "We are one!"

An official travelling with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Pyeongchang told reporters the Japanese government believed sanctions were "starting to bite", citing recent instances of ship-to-ship transfers at sea.

It was reported yesterday that the organizers of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics 2018 were looking into a possible cyberattack that was executed during the opening ceremony on Friday.

Such a summit, if it came about, would mark the first time that leaders of the two Koreas have met since 2007.

South Korea has been using the Pyeongchang Games to break the ice with the reclusive North, which has been trading nuclear threats with the United States recently. The night before, Kim and other North Korean delegates attended the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics, watching a "unified" Korean team march under a banner showing an undivided Korean Peninsula.
