Ivanka concludes S.Korea visit, hopes to return

Brief footage of the VIP enclosure at the arena showed South Korean President Moon Jae-in shaking hands first with Trump's daughter Ivanka and then with North Korean General Kim Yong Chol - who reportedly expressed Pyongyang's willingness to hold talks with Washington.

South Korea's President Moon has tried to bring Washington and Pyongyang together at these Olympics.

Also seated nearby was Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of USA forces Korea.

The South Korean president's office says a North Korean delegate to Olympics has said Pyongyang is willing to hold talks with U.S. The Blue House, South Korea's presidential office, reported the news during the games' closing ceremony.

However, it has been more than two months since North Korea's last missile test. Moon did not immediately accept, but such a meeting would appear likely. Some observers believe that Pyongyang is trying to drive a wedge to win concessions from Seoul.

"The United States of America doesn't stand with murderous dictatorships, we stand up to murderous dictatorships", Pence said in a speech Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland.

Rangers trade All-Star winger Nash to Bruins
In anticipation of trading Nash, the Rangers had the forward sit out their past two games to avoid the possibility injury. He was originally drafted in the first overall of the 2002 National Hockey League draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets .

He is the former head of the General Reconnaissance Bureau tasked with foreign espionage and cyber attacks and now leads the United Front Department, a civilian intelligence agency.

With decades of experience, he is one of the most powerful people in the North's ruling regime.

Kim Yong Chol himself is blacklisted under Seoul's unilateral sanctions against the North, which subject him to an assets freeze.

A North Korean delegation headed by a former intelligence chief has been greeted by protests as it crossed into South Korea to attend the closing ceremony.

US President Donald Trump's eldest daughter and key adviser Ivanka will also attend the event, creating protocol headaches for Seoul officials. The North's delegation also agreed that "South-North relations and U.S". "Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony!"

The inclusion of Kim, a former spy chief who's on the list of individuals sanctioned by the US and South Korea, is considered controversial given his past ties to a fatal torpedo attack on a South Korean warship in 2010.

The UN refugee agency has also been excluded from a Rohingya refugee repatriation process organised by Bangladesh and Myanmar. Almost 700,000 Rohingyas have fled violence in Rakhine state since last August and took shelter in Bangladesh.

At that appearance, Pence looked stony-faced when the North and South Korean athletes entered the stadium.

Athletes of the Unified inter-Korean team, were all dressed in white jackets as they arrived during the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games, Feb. 9, 2018.

"How can a murderer who killed 46 sailors on the Cheonan warship can be invited, protected and defended?"

On Sunday, South Korea confirmed another interesting name on the list: Choi Kang Il, the deputy director of the North American affairs.

There were no major clashes.

Pence's office claimed afterward that the North had pulled out of a planned meeting at the last minute.
