Pence says 'no daylight' between U.S. and allies on North Korea

Pence says 'no daylight' between U.S. and allies on North Korea

Perhaps the most intriguing geopolitical news to come out of the start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, held in PyeongChang, South Korea, might be the fact that the two Korean states made a decision to unify on the global stage for the occasion.

Unified Korea's flagbearers (North Korea's ice hockey player) Hwang Chung Gum (L) and (South Korea's bobsledder) Won Yun-jong (R) lead the Unified Korea's delegation.

Athletes from South Korea and North Korea marched under the Korea Unification flag at the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

Outside the stadium, Zumi Miranada, a tourist from the Philippines, said the current cooperation between the North and South gives her "peace of mind" as a tourist. We are not going to reveal the source.

New Zealand flag bearer Beau-James Wells wore a cape to the opening ceremony.


The two leaders however, did not discuss North Korea's invitation to Moon to visit Pyongyang, according to a senior administration official.

But cyberattacks and other forms of assault were a big point of fearful contention prior to the games in South Korea as tensions with long-time, adjacent adversary North Korea and much of the diplomatic world have become even more strained.

North Korea is sending 22 athletes, including the Alpine skiers, to Pyeongchang thanks to special entries given by the International Olympic Committee amid rare reconciliation mood between the rival Koreas.

With many people asleep in America, a cold opening ceremony was getting underway in South Korea. "We want peace, everybody wants peace, nobody wants war". I just hope I represented my team mates well.

The flag-bearer is chosen by a vote of the eight US winter sports federations but the result was tied at 4-4 between Hamlin and Davis and a coin was used to break the tie, in keeping with United States Olympic Committee (USOC) rules.
