Winter Olympics off to a great start in Pyeongchang Video

What was lost to editing was no great loss, although US viewers were deprived of a knowing chuckle from hearing International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach thank the volunteers making the Pyeongchang Games go. In case Kim Jong-un springs a surprise, the United States does not want to get caught off guard. As the North spent the past year threatening the world with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons, people are wary of its recent behavior in the name of "peace" and "harmony".

"Make no mistake about it, the United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea but, that being said, we hope for a better path", he said.

Pyeongchang: South Korea on Saturday investigated a mysterious internet shutdown during the Winter Olympics opening ceremony, which follows warnings of possible cyber attacks during the Pyeongchang Games.

"We would like to see you at an early date in Pyongyang", Kim Yo Jong told Moon during the lunch, according to another Blue House official.

The two neighboring rival countries displayed an act of solidarity by having some participants from each country honored together during the opening ceremony, and combining the respective women's hockey teams into a singular, unified one. The invitation was extended by Kim's younger sister Kim Yo Jong, a last-minute addition to the Olympic delegation.

The vice president and North Koreans are not expected to interact Saturday during events in Pyeongchang, according to a second USA official.

"And to recognize that whatever images may emerge against the powerful backdrop and idealism of the Olympics, North Korea has to accept change", Pence told reporters at a South Korean naval base before heading to the Olympic Games venue.

Also, North Korea sent its own cheerleader squad and an art troupe who are scheduled to perform in the Pyeongchang Winter Games. It turns out that another source of players was just 40 miles or so from Pyeongchang - and across the DMZ in North Korea.

North Korea has been accused of involvement in a number of cyber incidents, including WannaCry - although it has slammed that accusation as "absurd". The North Koreans have invited Moon to visit Pyongyang in what would be the third inter-Korean summit talks since their 1945 division. Playing in front of senior members of North Korean's leadership, she added, "was the greatest honour for me". The Swiss won 8-0.

The players shook hands with South Korean President Moon but Kim did not offer her hand. There's a chance they'll also watch a performance by a visiting North Korean art troupe in Seoul on Sunday before flying back to Pyongyang. At the last moment, though, they handed off the flame to former Olympic champion figure skater Yuna Kim, arguably South Korea's most famous person.
