Korean leaders may have first summit meeting in 10 years

"South Korean President Moon Jae-in is pro-Pyongyang and he has used the Winter Olympics to protect North Korea from the pressure that was being applied by Japan and the USA", said Kazuhiro Araki, who heads the Unidentified Persons Investigation Committee at NARKN, the National Association for the Rescue of Japanese Kidnapped by North Korea. A dialogue between North Korea and the U.S.is among actions that would improve the atmosphere for a meeting, Yonhap reported, citing an unidentified Blue House official.

Speaking at his swearing in ceremony previous year, Moon said he would be willing to travel to Pyongyang "under the right conditions", adding that "for peace on the Korean Peninsula, I will do everything that I can do".

Moon briefly met Kim at the reception he hosted for visiting heads of state and other global leaders, before the opening of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Friday.

On the South Korean side of the meeting of course South Korean President Moon Jae-in chief of National Security Council Chung Eui-yong, his chief of staff, the unification minister, and chief of the South's intelligence agency.

"Make no mistake about it, the United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea but, that being said, we hope for a better path", he said. "No one else in leadership can bring messages directly to Kim Jong Un". A top North Korean official seemed to rule out a potential meeting with US officials in the North's state-run media on Thursday, but Pence suggested to reporters that it was still a possibility.

Many in Seoul, however, while interested in the warming high-level contacts, are also tempering expectations for a real breakthrough.

Pence also spent time at the Cheonan Memorial Friday, to honor a ship sunk by a North Korean torpedo attack in 2010.

She attributed the decline to a variety of factors including the political taunting between the United States and North Korea. In remarks after a meeting with Moon, Pence made no mention of the potential for North-South dialogue (unlike the South Korean president).

After the threats, missile launches and general nastiness from the North over the past year, there is still a lot of anger, fear and scepticism in the South.

All the protests and ceremonies surrounding the first combined Korean team in Olympic history are about to take a pause, at least for a few hours.

Moon's desire to engage North Korea was in contrast to his United States ally.

The guests, including leaders of North and South, were invited to pour melted white chocolate on top - and the barbed wire would dissolve.

The US and Japan have both raised concerns about North Korea hijacking the Winter Olympics and undermining South Korean efforts to organise the Games.

The work-around showed the host had adopted the principle that "no one should be uncomfortable with the person sitting next to them", with those from worldwide organizations playing a buffer role, the official said.

They shook hands with Moon and cheered for athletes from the two countries who marched under a unified peninsula flag for the first time in a decade. Fred Warmbier also attended the Opening Ceremonies, although he did not sit in the VIP box.

Pence and Abe arrived at the pre-reception together but were forced to wait for Moon in a separate room because they arrived late, according to a South Korean report.
