Slovakia v United States- 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship

"And we are not going to be lulled by the Olympic experience and North Korea marching with their South Korean, you know, friends or family or whatever, and giving them a platform to put on their charm offensive". Kim Yo Jong now holds that position.

The delegation is made up mostly of a 229-member cheer squad, along with 26 taekwondo performers, 21 journalists and four North Korean Olympics committee members. That's right. Topping the discussions even through dinner will no doubt be the surprise visit by the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's only sibling in the media spotlight, Kim Yo-jong.

President Moon Jae-in and US Vice President Mike Pence shake hands at the South Korean presidential office on Thursday.

After her elevation, the US Treasury Department had reportedly included her on the list of blacklisted officials of North Korea.

Footage from the official broadcast also showed what looked like several intercontinental ballistic missiles, including the newly developed Hwasong-15s, which North Korea claims is capable of hitting the U.S. "Both Korea and China need to work toward the same goal to encourage the USA and North Korea to hold dialogue".
