South Korean president to meet Kim Jong Un's sister during Olympics

Slovakia v United States- 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship

They are scheduled to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday.

"We will not allow North Korean propaganda to hijack the message and imagery of the Olympic Games", he said.

S. Vice President further said that the objective of his trip was to "make sure that North Korea doesn't use the powerful symbolism and the backdrop of the Winter Olympics to paper over the truth about their regime".

The 90-minute "curtailed military parade" was not broadcast live - an unusual move apparently aimed at keeping the event low-key, says South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Two other DPRK delegates were Choe Hwi, chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee, and Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland.

"We'll be there to cheer our athletes, but we'll also be there to stand with our allies, and remind the world that North Korea is the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet", Pence said.

"The U.S. will always seek peace, we will ever strive for a better future, but you the instruments of American power know and let our adversaries know all options are on the table".

South Korea, which is hosting the Games, had asked the International Olympic Committee to decide whether the song's content was acceptable, but officials decided to make the cuts themselves while the IOC was still deliberating.

Vice-Pres. Mike Pence is attending the opening ceremonies, but stopped Tuesday for a diplomatic visit in Japan.

Choe Hwi's visit, however, requires the South be granted a temporary exemption from global sanctions against the DPRK. If no objections are raised by any of the 15 members by Thursday afternoon, then the request will be approved. In October, the young heiress was promoted to the party's politburo, an opaque, all-powerful decision-making body that decides top state affairs. The two countries will enter the ceremony together this year, and they are fielding a women's hockey team medal competition with athletes from both countries.

Because of her influence, the South Korean media calls her the North's Ivanka Trump. Choe is on a United Nations blacklist barring him from travel.

Tape delay or not, the parade was watched closely in South Korea, where Pence arrived Thursday.
