  • South and North Korean athletes unite during opening ceremony in Pyeongchang

Saturday's meeting was the first time a South Korean president hosted North Korean officials at the Blue House since 2007.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited the South's President Moon Jae-in for a summit in Pyongyang, Seoul said today.

Kim Yo-jong came to the South on Friday as a special envoy of the North Korean leader.

Pence said Moon updated him about the meeting he had with North Korean officials and "both of us reiterated to each other tonight that we will continue to stand strong and work in a coordinated way to bring maximum economic and diplomatic pressure to bear on North Korea".

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. Led by Seoul and Washington, the worldwide community has made it clear on numerous occasions that Pyongyang's nuclear program must be ended in irreversible and verifiable manner. "We get along personally, so I believe that Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, if they talked, they'd probably get along".

At the opening ceremony Friday night, Pence was seated in front of Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un's sister and part of the North Korean delegation. "And we hope you take the comment as it is".

Pence said the United States and South Korea were closely aligned in their approach to dealing with North Korea.

Earlier in the week, he joined Pence at a meeting with North Korean defectors. The attack on the ship, Cheonan, killed 46 South Korean sailors.

Adam Rippon doesn't want his monthlong dispute with Mike Pence over the USA vice president's record on gay rights to overshadow his long-awaited Olympic performance.

"What the president said exactly is let's create the right circumstances to make it happen", Yoon said in a statement.

The Cheong Wa Dae spokesman also said the two sides discussed issues regarding inter-Korean relations under a "friendly atmosphere".

However, the road to US-North Korea talks is unlikely to be easy.

This has exposed the gaps between Seoul and Washington in how to deal with North Korea.

A high-ranking North Korean delegation of Kim, and North Korea's nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam, had arrived in South Korea earlier in the day aboard Kim Jong Un's private jet. A Blue House official initially said the president had accepted Kim's offer, but that was later denied by chief spokesman Yoon Young-chan. The South Korean forward Han Soo-jin contributed the team's most aggressive attempt in the whole game, but her efforts were in vain with the puck hit the net "roof".

Korean goalie Shin So-jung was busy against Switzerland, facing 52 shots while Swiss goalie Florence Schelling only saw eight.
