'Deep down': Rivalry between Koreas, Japan transcends sport

A high-level delegation had arrived in Pyeongchang in South Korea for a three-day visit earlier that was led by the North Korean ceremonial head of state, Kim-Yong nam.

South and North Korea, the countries that are technically in a nuclear conflict, played together against Japan on Tuesday.

The situation in South Korea follows a far less successful Olympic Truce four years ago in Sochi which was disrupted by host nation Russian Federation invading Ukraine.

The North Korean issue is especially emotional in South Korea because the peninsula, which had been one country for thousands of years, was arbitrarily cut in half at the end of World War II, in what was supposed to be a temporary division.

The KCNA report suggested the North Korean leader wished to build on that rapprochement, saying he felt it "important to continue making good results by further livening up the warm climate of reconciliation and dialogue".

A Kim Jong-un impersonator went to greet North Korean cheerleaders at the Winter Olympics, and you can bet it caused quite the stir.

The Pence's did not turn around to greet her and did not stand up when a unified North Korea-South Korea team entered the stadium during the parade of nations.

The 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang were kicked off on February 9. She delivered a letter inviting South Korea's President Moon Jae In to visit North Korea.

"Those who didn't find it amusing were their minders ... three rough-looking guys, not in uniform who I suspect were North Koreans, came out of nowhere and grabbed me by the arm".

The Washington Times reported that Pence continued to speak about Kim Yo Jong during the question and answer session.

"The cheers themselves, I have to admit, are very catchy", Kimmel said.

" 'Pair figure skating became huge in North Korea ever since Kim Jong Un came into power".

In addition, Moon suggested that North Korea must put more effort into having diplomatic talks with the United States.

"I am aware that some people argue that because North Korea is engaging in dialogue we should reward them", Foreign Minister Taro Kono said ahead of the Games.

The US wants to strengthen sanctions and military pressure toward North Korea.

North Korea aggressively tested ballistic missiles and thermonuclear bombs in 2017 all while threatening to destroy the U.S., Japan, and South Korea with fire.
