Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he chose not to acknowledge the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during his recent trip to South Korea and the Olympics.

But the United States and Japan have warned against North Korea's "smile diplomacy", through which Pyongyang is apparently trying to weaken global economic sanctions against it by getting close to South Korea.

The ministry also is expected to cover the costs of sending a 150-person North Korean delegation to the Paralympic Winter Games next month.

Kim Yo-jong reportedly delivered an invitation from her brother for Moon to visit Pyongyang for closer talks and cooperation.

"To see an ally, at least some members of the media, praising this woman, Kim Jong Un's sister, part of the dictatorship there, was completely mind-boggling to a lot of South Koreans", he said.

When asked if Bach should be proposed for the prize, after helping broker North Korea's attendance, Adams said: "There's no formal discussion yet at all".

The two Koreas have never signed a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War, and are in a constant state of mutual distrust. Ms Kim appeared to charm South Korea's media with her near-permanent smile as she conducted a whirlwind round of diplomacy.

Some cheerleaders immediately averted their gaze as the impersonator, who later only identified himself as Howard, smiled and waved to crowds who came to watch a unified Korean team play Japan at the Pyeongchang Games. He generated headlines Wednesday by appearing before the North Korean cheerleaders in the stands, which gave the cheerleaders a brief moment of pause before they realized what was going on, per Reuters.

In addition, Moon suggested that North Korea must put more effort into having diplomatic talks with the United States.

The South's President Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday that the U.S.is open to talking with North Korea, Mr. Moon's spokesman told a briefing. "I believe that North Korea wants to buy some time to continue their nuclear missile programme".

"I'm not sure Americans grasp how quickly some of those pieces were circulating here at the Olympics", Geist said.

He added, though, that South Korea remains mindful of United Nations sanctions against the North, which is created to prevent any foreign support of its weapons programme. "Sports bring people together", Murray said.

That's because three weeks before the Olympic Winter Games began, Murray was thrust into one of the biggest dramas in PyeongChang: North and South Korea - two countries that do not get along.
