Winter Olympics 2018: Koreans march under unified flag

North and South Korea Walk Under the Same Flag at the Olympics, in a Symbol of Peace

South Korea news agency Yonhap reported Pence also made only a brief appearance at a pre-Opening Ceremony reception dinner hosted by Moon.

President Donald Trump, as well as several USA allies, have agreed to halt all military exercises until after the Olympics, Pence said.

The Tongan athlete who raised eyebrows for going shirtless while carrying his country's flag during the Olympic Opening Ceremony in Rio two years ago, has done it again.

Here's what we know about Kim Yo Jong.

The DPRK sent a 140-member art troupe for performances in Gangneung, an eastern city near PyeongChang, on Thursday and in capital Seoul on Sunday.

South Korea says the artists will return to the North on Tuesday by a land route.

It was in keeping with his determined effort to turn a cold shoulder to what he's called North Korea's "propaganda" around the games in South Korea.

USA and South Korean defence chiefs agreed to suspend military drills during the games as a show of good will. Moon asked him to greet the other dignitaries at the event and Pence did, shaking the hands of everyone at the VIP table except for Kim Yong-nam. The North Koreans were in the room at the same time as Pence, an official said.

While Mr. Moon and Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, both shook hands with Mr. Kim, Mr. Pence did not, South Korean officials said. North Korea's participation in the event has been viewed as a sign of thawing relations between the two Koreas.

The Olympic flame for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang was lit on Friday, marking the climax of the opening ceremony.

Moon has embraced the Games as an opportunity for a thaw in tensions, calling them "Olympic Games of peace".

Teams from North and South Korea team entered the arena under the unification flag, a blue silhouette of the peninsula and outlying islands.

Kim Yong Nam is president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly.

Kim Yo Jong, the first member of the North's ruling dynasty to venture South since the Korean War, forms part of the highest level delegation ever to cross the border.

A high-ranking DPRK delegation arrived in South Korea by private jet earlier in the day to attend the opening ceremony.

One Twitter user wrote: "Why did South Korea choose to light the Olympic torch with some sort of flaming robot penis?"

Yuna Kim is a Korean hero.

What did seem clear was that, deliberately or not, the North Korean government had managed to edge its way onto center stage during the South's biggest global moment in years.

Moon later officially declared the first Winter Olympic Games to be held in South Korea open. Dozens of South Koreans at the airport tried to snap photographs of her on their mobile phones.
