Ivanka Trump arrives in S.Korea

Patty Aguilar | 23 February, 2018, 12:36

Trump, daughter of and advisor to US President Donald Trump, is scheduled to have dinner with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the Blue House in Seoul during her visit.

Hopes are high in South Korea that she may deliver a message from President Trump on North Korea.

Trump is not expected to meet with any North Korean officials during her visit.

Ivanka is leading what the USA has said will be an eight-member delegation to the closing ceremonies of the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, which will be held Sunday.

The 36-year-old businesswoman and former model will be joined by press secretary Sarah Sanders and is going in part because "she is something of a winter sports enthusiast", an official said.

South Korean media said Moon would emphasize the importance of U.S.

The Olympic Games, which began on 9 February, are being held in the South Korean town of Pyeongchang.

A North Korean delegation will also attend the closing ceremony, but the South Korean government said it's unlikely that Ivanka Trump will meet the North Koreans or defectors from North Korea.

Willoughby is loathe to accept this justification, asking Bolton whether that makes it okay to be a racist in private. Losing the position of UKIP leader was worth it to continue his relationship with Jo Marney, Henry Bolton has said.

South Korean lawmakers on Friday protested against the visit, calling him a war criminal.

South Korean officials arranged a later meeting between the two, United States officials said, but the North Koreans pulled out at the last minute.

It is unclear if Gen Kim himself gave the order to torpedo the ship. The younger sister of North Korea's leader is the country's head of propaganda.

Earlier this month, US Vice-President Mike Pence attended the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

Comparisons have been drawn between Ms Trump and Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who appeared to mesmorise global media with her presence at the Opening Ceremony, despite not speaking a word in public. The North has adamantly said it is unwilling to give up its nuclear weapons programme.

However, there are concerns Pyongyang has been using the event simply to improve its worldwide image.

"It is a great honour to be here in South Korea with the U.S. delegation".
