The 12 North Korean members of the squad are: number 4 Kim Un-Hyang, 14, Ryo Song-Hui, 18 Kim Un-Jong, 25 Ri Pom, 26 Kim Hyang-Mi, 27 Jong Su-Hong, 32 Choe Un-Gyong, 39 Hwang Chung Gum, 41 Hwang Sol-Hyong, 42 Ryu Su-Jong, and 47 Choe Jong-Hui.

American skaters Lana Gehring and Maame Biney enjoyed the presence of the North Korean supporters. While it would be a diplomatic coup for Moon, who was elected on a promise to pursue warmer relations with the North, it could strain relations with the United States, which has appeared uncomfortable at the warm welcome afforded to the North Korean delegation over the past few days.

And that folder? It turns out it contained a personal letter from Kim Jong Un to South Korea's president.

President Trump's right-hand man was at the Gangneung Ice Arena on Saturday night to watch the opening session of short-track speedskating and, for the second evening in succession, he was unable to avoid a connection to North Korea.

"Honestly, I didn't know I would come here so suddenly".

Dressed in matching bright red coats, the young women in their 20s are said to have been selected for their duty, youth and enthusiasm by Kim Jong-Un himself. "But I love North Koreans". It was built in the 1960s under the government of late anti-communist dictator Park Chung-hee as a luxury facility for US troops stationed in South Korea.

And while the unified Korean Olympic team received a standing ovation as they marched into the stadium Friday night, Pence remained seated, which critics said was disrespectful of the athletes and his host, Moon.

Grealish stars as Aston Villa goes second
Adomah may have turned the game in Villa's favour but his team-mate Jack Grealish was the driving force for the hosts. Calderwood, standing in for the indisposed Steve Bruce , was full of praise for the all-round team performance.

'Our team being put together was a political statement but now that the team is together we are just one team, ' said Canadian head coach Sarah Murray.

"We hope that President (Moon) could leave a legacy that would last over generations by leading the way in opening a new era of unification", she said, according to Moon's office.

Moon has long sought engagement with the North to bring it to the negotiating table, and for months has promoted Pyeongchang as a "peace Olympics". -North Korea meetings (or lack thereof) ignores what was going on beneath the surface.

Pyeongchang Winter Olympics organisers confirmed on Sunday that the Games had fallen victim to a cyber attack during Friday's opening ceremony, but they refused to reveal the source. "There are some who would not want to be in the same room together if it wasn't for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics". The U.S. -led worldwide community has been tightening the screws on North Korea with sanctions created to punish its economy and rein in its efforts to expand its nuclear weapons and missile program, which now includes developmental long-range missiles targeting the U.S. mainland. The issue is not "intent": The issue is taking time to note that Mike Pence was thrown shade, regardless of who threw it-in this case, a woman who was sanctioned by the USA government in connection to human rights abuses authorized by her brother, who regards her as a confidant. Of course, if North Korea moves forward with new provocations - such as missile or nuclear tests - all bets are off.

"What can not be overlooked is that Moon did not directly demand North Korea to abandon its nuclear development".

Japanese editorials sounded a similar warning, saying dialogue would be meaningless unless it led to denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.
