President Trump, Kim Jong Un lookalikes at Olympics 'want peace'

He's a huge favorite to take the gold medal in South Korea.

He is due to meet the North Korean delegation for talks on Saturday according to Yonhap.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is among the worldwide VIPs that will gather for the two-hour ceremony at the $58 million stadium along with some 35,000 spectators Friday evening.

Kim is thought to be about 30 years old, around four years younger than her brother. "Contrary to popular belief, the 14-hour time difference works really great for live primetime coverage", says Jim Bell, president of NBC Olympics Production & Programming.

Moon's office said he told Abe that the talks between the Koreas would not disrupt global efforts to deal with North Korea's nuclear program.

The opening ceremony took place before a world watching the Games not only for their athletic significance and global spectacle, but for clues about what the political future of the peninsula could hold.

Moon said improved relations between the Koreas may be a step toward resolving the nuclear standoff.

After touring the grounds of the Cheonan Memorial with North Korean defectors and Fred Warmbier, Pence told reporters that Moon not only supports the latest round of sanctions against North Korea - part of the U.S.'s "extreme pressure campaign", but credits the sanctions with forcing the imminent inter-Korean dialogue during the Olympics.

The last team out were the Koreans, with athletes from north and south of the border entering the arena together under a united flag, prompting a huge cheer from the crowd.

And before all of that, Kim and President Donald Trump were hanging out with each other. Pence's trip began in Japan, stopped in Seoul, and culminated with his visit to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

The presence of Kim, who was promoted to the country's Politburo, the senior body of North Korea's communist party, as an alternate member a year ago, represents a hugely significant move in the thawing of relations between the North and South. He also left when the unified Korean team marched in, The New York Times reported.

Zhu added the North Korean regime's past actions indicate they will resume hostile and aggressive rhetoric, perhaps firing another missile, but only after the games have concluded.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in hosted the reception at a hotel in Yongpyeong, just east of the host city of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games. She had been sent to study overseas at a school in Switzerland when she was about eight or nine years old, the professor said, although few details are known about her time there.

During the ceremony, the President of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach also addressed the crowd to deliver a "strong message of peace, unity in the face of diversity and cleanliness", a viewer recalled, which "made the hairs on my arm stand up".
