North Korean leaders get warm reception at the Winter Olympics

"North Korea must recognize that the strong ties between Japan, the United States and South Korea will never waver", he told reporters after the meeting with Moon.

Her presence in the Olympics Stadium in Pyeongchang is the first time that a member of her family have visited South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War.

"I leave here very confident that we are going to continue to do the things we've known have to be done to continue to pressure North Korea to abandon their nuclear ambitions".

During the 2000s, the two countries' athletes marched together at the opening and closing ceremonies of several worldwide sporting events, including the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
