However, "At the last minute, DPRK [North Korean] officials decided not to go forward with the meeting", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

She said the USA regrets failing to "seize the opportunity" - but added they will not apologise for "calling attention to human rights abuses, or for mourning a young American's unjust death". However, the North Koreans scrapped the February 10 meeting two hours before it was set to start, the vice president's office confirmed.

"The president made a decision that if they wanted to talk, we would deliver our uncompromising message". Pence's office said they believed the abrupt cancellation was a sign that United States attempts to exert pressure on the regime were working. "Perhaps that's why they walked away from a meeting or perhaps they were never honest about sitting down".

Pence's guest for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies was Fred Warmbier, the father of Otto Warmbier, the USA student who died in 2017 shortly after he was released from North Korean detention. "I didn't believe it was proper for the US to give her any attention in that forum", Pence explained.

Pence had tough words about North Korea ahead of the games.

Mr Pence was seated within an earshot of Kim Yo-Jong but did not speak with her.

"North Korea would have strongly preferred the vice-president not use the world stage to call attention to those absolute facts or to display our strong alliance with those committed to the maximum pressure campaign", Mr Ayers added.

Signs of a North-South thaw have prompted speculation that it could lead to direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang after months of tension and exchanges of insults between US President Donald Trump and Kim, fueling fears of war.

"We are not going to make the same mistakes as previous administrations", a White House National Security Council official told Yonhap, referring to past U.S.

The United Nations has imposed a series of sanctions on North Korea, including one prohibiting all member states from facilitating or engaging in ship-to-ship transfers of goods to or from North-flagged vessels, over the hermit nation's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.

The total expenditure, which came from a budget set aside for inter-Korean talks, includes 130 million won for the delegates' accommodations, 50 million won for their transportation and 50 million won for their meals, the ministry said.

"But if I have any contact with them - in any context - over the next two days, my message will be the same as it was here today: North Korea needs to once and for all abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile ambitions", Pence said.
