Trump, Kim Jong Un impersonators tossed from Olympics opening ceremony

The North's state-run news agency said talks with President Moon Jae-in were "frank" but failed to mention the summit invitation.

North Korea has sent hundreds of people to the Olympics in the South, including officials, athletes, artists, journalists and a 230-member cheering group. South Korea, meanwhile, said it "will strive to resolve" the issue of a statue symbolizing comfort women in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.

"The United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea", he said.

I am very confident, as President Trump is, that President Moon will continue to stand strongly with us in our extreme-pressure campaign.

The South Korean President and Yo-jong will jointly attend the North Korean art troupe's concert at the National Theater of Korea in central Seoul on Sunday, according to officials.

Vice President Mike Pence, who will head the US delegation at Friday's opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea, will also be competing in a hard new event not on any Olympic program.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in to visit at the "earliest possible date", via a message delivered by Kim's sister Saturday.

Three dead after helicopter crashes in Grand Canyon
The helicopter had at least seven people on board when it crashed, FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said, citing local authorities. Three people are dead and four are injured after a helicopter touring the Grand Canyon crashed Saturday evening.

Mr Moon said in response the two countries should "create the environment for that to be able to happen".

The prospect of the two-way talks, however, may not be welcomed by the US.

The meeting comes after the USA warned against engagement with Pyongyang.

But away from the spotlight, these two unwanted guests, men dressed as North Korea supreme leader and the USA president, were escorted away from the premises. Washington has pursued a strategy of exerting maximum pressure on Pyongyang through tough sanctions and harsh rhetoric, demanding it give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

In a rare public moment, President Moon shook hands with Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of Kim Jong Un, at start of the opening ceremony.

Pence had told Seoul in advance that he would be dining with U.S. athletes soon afterwards "so his seat was not prepared accordingly", the spokesman said.

The games will take place amid an global standoff over North Korea's nuclear weapons but the North has sent almost 500 people to Pyeongchang, including officials, athletes, artists and cheerleaders, after the Koreas agreed to a series of conciliatory gestures to mark the games. North Korea sent nearly 500 representatives, including athletes and 230 people state-sanctioned cheering team to PyeongChang to join with South Korea's delegates in an attempt for the rival nations to revive diplomatic communications.
