The Newest: Kim's sister says hopes to see Moon in N….

"This is the strongest action yet by North Korea to drive a wedge between the South and the United States", South Korea's former vice foreign minister Kim Sung-han told the news service.

The North's delegation led by its ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam returned home late Sunday after a three-day visit to the South for the ongoing PyeongChang Winter Olympics, reports Yonhap News Agency.

"We would like to see you at an early date in Pyongyang", North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister reportedly said in a message delivered to South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

The Korean women's hockey team is also the first in Olympic history to feature players from both countries.

In this year's Games, the two rival nations joined to form a united Koreas team, leaving many dreaming of a world where they are not feuding.

Moon urged the North Koreans to talk with Washington as soon as possible. "His visit shows North Korea's wishes to improve inter-Korean relations and for a successful Olympics".

Pence refused to meet with the North Korean delegation and told United States news on Friday: "I am very confident, as President Trump is, that President Moon will continue to stand strongly with us in our extreme-pressure campaign".


"Seriously, the team. Something that is recognising the sacrifice they made to adjusting their competitions", she said.

The spokesman says Moon replied that the North and South should continue to work to build conditions so that a summit can take place. North Korea's treatment of his son, he said, "is their standard ― that's the way they do business".

Moon shook hands with Kim's sister at the presidential Blue House in Seoul.

It was the first time an inter-Korean team had competed at an Olympic Games.

The opening ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics aired last night, February 9, and amid the reactions to the event's music, the return of Tonga's shirtless flag-bearer, and the emerging memes, some people are calling attention to Vice President Mike Pence's behavior in the stands.

It's unclear whether the occasion could be used to set up bigger meetings between the Koreas to ease tensions.
