Winter Olympics Organizers Probe Potential Cyberattack On Opening Ceremony Day

Numerous protestors carried American flags, and one carried a banner making a direct plea to President Donald Trump.

Since 2015 she has been entrusted with North Korea's Propaganda and Agitation Department, and is often seen shadowing her brother on official propaganda tours of the country.

Kim Yo Jong said she hopes to see Moon in Pyongyang soon so that he and her brother could "exchange views over many issues", which she said would make "North-South relations develop like yesterday was a long time ago".

Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, invited the South Korean President to the North in person.

Minutes later came a moment stunning in its optics and its implications: the United States, represented by Vice President Mike Pence, sitting a row ahead of Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong, and the North's nominal head of state, all watching the games begin - officials from two nations that many worry have been on the brink of nuclear conflict. I mean, we get along personally, so I believe Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, they will, if they talk, they'll probably get along, because in my opinion, they're much the same people.

It was a raucous and historic night mixing sports and politics on an global stage for a second straight night in this remote region of South Korea.

Kim Jong Il traveled to Beijing to meet then Chinese president Jiang Zemin before the summit.

South Korean player Ko Hyein said: "We had a tight game at first in the first period, but our mental toughness wasn't really good so we lost our posture after suffering the first goal".

Skeptics say North Korea, which is unlikely to give up its nukes under any deal, is just using the Olympics to poke holes at the US-led worldwide sanctions against the country and buy more time to further advance its strategic weaponry.

"Kim's proposal for a summit with Moon is based on the premise that the North will stick to its nuclear weapons while seeking rapprochement with the South", he told AFP.

"Using the occasion of the Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea, sports, construction, and other sectors have been ordered to recruit foreign investors", a source in Pyongyang told Daily NK on February 6.

Kim, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, is leading North Korea's delegation to the Olympics.

Saturday's meeting follows a brief encounter between the two parties at the Opening Ceremony Friday, in which Moon twice shook hands with Kim Yo Jong.

All three were reportedly due to watch the Koreas' unified women's ice hockey team's first match against Switzerland later Saturday. The North's political delegation was set to leave Sunday.

"The vice present cheered for the team he's rooting for".
