Pence said that one of the main reasons why he chose to ignore Kim Yo Jong is the Pyongyang's violation of human rights with its prisons crawling with more than 100,000 Koreans who only crime was to have a dissenting voice with Kim Jong Un.

We don't know about you, but we have had more than our fill of fawning media coverage of Kim Yo-jong's visit to the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Moon himself has said that he is waiting for "the right conditions", a term that may be a polite way of saying the conditions now are not right and we have to wait. Moreover, the United States may be disappointed that South Korea let down its guard as an ally.

He also proclaimed that the PyeongChang Games are the "most successful Olympics".

"This is exactly what we should expect from North Korea", said Park Jae-jin, a retired office worker from Seoul.

He said he disagrees with the prevailing view that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is developing nuclear weapons to safeguard his own regime. The vibe among foreign visitors was definitive and palpable: nearly everyone I interviewed said that seeing the two Koreas march together under one unified flag was the highlight of the night. As they did at figure skating and women's hockey, the North Korean cheerleaders - dressed in blue and white tops and red trousers - waved flags showing the Korean Peninsula and danced, swayed, sang and chanted in unison.

On Tuesday, the USA director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, said North Korea presented "a potentially existential" threat to the United States and said time was running out to act on the threat.

Roared on by around 150 of North Korea's famed "Army of Beauties" cheerleaders sporting red and white puffer jackets and dark glasses, the 25-year-old Kim punched the air as she crossed the line in one piece. "This pressure campaign ... is having its bite on North Korea".

The regime held a special assembly meeting on Thursday, 15 February, in the North Korean capital Pyongyang on the eve of the late leader's birth anniversary.

Moon last week received an invitation from the North's leader Kim Jong Un for a summit in Pyongyang. The mausoleum houses former leaders of North Korea and it is customary for high-ranking North Korean leaders to visit the place on key occasions. He faces United Nations sanctions. "Having recently learned that the National Football League would not allow a veterans organization to encourage Americans to stand for our flag, I can only conclude that something is very wrong with the National Football League". The United States will likely soon announce its strongest and most aggressive economic sanctions.

During the figure skating pair's short programme on Wednesday, South Korean students advocating for warmer ties with the North brandished a banner that read: "Pyeongchang fairy Ryom Tae Ok, jump toward unification!"
