But South Korea has been flexible with these rules as it accommodates the North Koreans to the Pyeongchang Games.

South Korea is ranked 22nd, and North Korea is 25th.

North Korea has sent some of the highest level officials ever to the south for these games, the result of diplomacy by Seoul that led to an agreement between the two countries - still formally at war - to participate together in the Winter Games.

The vice president's snub of the North Koreans - and, by extension, the host country - highlighted the divisions between the U.S. and South Korea on how to deal with the North.

The North initially had no athletes coming to the Olympics, but the International Olympic Committee allowed 22 as special entries.

On Thursday, North Korea said its official delegation to the PyeongChang Olympics had no intention of meetings its US. counterpart.

"It means that the North Korean's national healthcare system is not working properly", Lee said. Jong and Moon shook hands and cheered on the athletes from the two countries who marched under a unified peninsula flag.

Moon has said his administration cannot accept the agreement, though it will not seek its renegotiation.

She is the first immediate family member of North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung to ever set foot in the South.

South Korea's Unification Ministry said Wednesday that the government is reviewing whether to meet North Korea's request to provide fuel to the ferry. He wants them all to win medals.

But Pence has not let up on the tough rhetoric he's been delivering since arriving in Asia. Its price starts at about $1,000. Moon hosted talks with Kim Yo-jong at the the presidential Blue House in Seoul.

Also in the North's delegation is Choe Hwi, a senior official blacklisted by the United Nations.

"As these people and their lives testify, it (the North) is a regime that imprisons, and tortures, and impoverishes its citizens". But the organizer decided not to give out the devices, rather than risking violating sanctions.

Reporters and spectators crowded to snap pics of them and with them - before security ushered them out.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam to engage in dialogue on ending the nuclear crisis during a brief exchange in South Korea , a UN spokesman said Friday. Pence also heard from North Korean defectors.

Five children then appeared, taking the audience on a journey to the past, present and future.

The North Korean representatives met Moon at the presidential office for a lunch meeting.

For TV viewers, augmented reality created a spectacular dome of constellations and stars above the performers before traditional Korean kites were then flown, a mural of the Four Guardians (symbols of ancient Koreans' hope for peace) was formed and 48 traditional dancers performed.

"There's no tolerance in this White House, and no place in America for domestic abuse", Pence said.
