Dense Mike Pence Continues His Hypocrisy In South Korea

Kim Jong-un invites South's Moon to Pyongyang

His remarks came after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's sister, who is attending the Olympics, invited South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, to visit Pyongyang.

Moon asked the North Korean team.

The 2018 Winter Olympic Games of Pyeongchang were officially launched at the Opening Ceremony. "An early resumption of dialogue between the U.S. and the North is needed also for the development of the South-North Korean relationship", he said, according to his spokesman.

The official added that Pence is confident that the United States, South Korea and Japan alliance will continue to be strong regardless of inter-Korean talks around the Olympics and whether or not they continue after the games.

The officials said it was fair to say both Pence and the North Koreans rebuffed South Korean President Moon Jae-in's efforts to facilitate a meeting between North Korea and the US.

Yo Jong, who was appointed a senior official in the ruling Workers' party previous year, was pictured being ushered around Incheon International Airport in South Korea by security.

Modi lands in Oman
This is a matter of great respect for the entire India and it is also a symbol of Palestine's friendship and goodwill for India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia, yesterday morning as part of his West Asia tour.

President Moon first shake hands with North Korea's honorary chief, Kim Yong-nam, at a leadership reception held prior to the ceremony.

South Korean participants included senior officials Jeong Eui-yong, Jo Myong-gyoon and Im Jong-suk - the chief Presidential Secretary.

The handwritten invitation to President Moon was delivered by Mr Kim's influential sister, Kim Yo-jong, at a landmark meeting in the presidential palace in Seoul, as the Games opened on Saturday.

"In the midst of all of this, he (North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) ran a military parade that highlighted his ballistic missiles", Mattis told reporters on his plane en route to Rome on the first leg of a European tour.

The top U.S. official was originally scheduled to sit at the head table with the South Korean host and North Korea's chief delegate to the Winter Games.

North Korea's Jong Su Hyon and South Korea's Park Jong-ah, members of the unified Korean women's hockey team, stood with the Olympic flame at the bottom of giant staircase looking up at the unlit cauldron atop Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium.
