The two never shook hands or spoke, according to Pence's office, but the optics were startling nonetheless.

The invitation was delivered on Saturday at a landmark meeting between Moon and the North Korean leader's sister Kim Yo-jong in the Presidential Palace in Seoul, Yonhap news agency reported. Between the lunch and talks, they spent nearly three hours together.

Pence did say, however, that Moon shared with him details of his meeting with North Korean leaders, without elaborating.

Critics - among them US Vice President Mike Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - warn of a charm offensive by Pyongyang, which mounted a military parade on Thursday in a show of strength.

Kim Yong Nam and Kim Yo Jong were the first individuals mentioned in its report on the opening ceremony, saying that they took their places on the platform at the event.

Her muted style stands in stark contrast to Kim Jong Un, whose eccentric style and fiery rhetoric has shaped the image of North Korea.

Some North Korean experts believe tough United Nations sanctions that are cutting off most of the isolated North's sources of revenue have added pressure on Pyongyang to engage further with Seoul.

The top delegates from Pyongyang delivered their leader's letter to President Moon before having lunch together.

The first full day of competition got underway Saturday at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, with five medal events and a slew of qualifying rounds.

"Working in unity on the way to unification", Kim Yong-nam wrote.

They were seated not far from a section of North Korean cheerleaders who are attending the Olympics in a sign of warming ties between the two Koreas that Pence and other USA officials have warned against.

"We have to be unified (with North Korea)".

"It didn't affect the opening ceremony", Park said. Instead of eating with Moon and the other dignitaries, Pence ate with the American athletes.

US President Mike Pence meets with Fred Warmbier, father of Otto Warmbier who died after being held captive by North Korea, and North Korean defector Ji Seong-ho at a South Korean naval base in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province on Friday. Those photos quickly went viral.

North and South Koreans marching together under a unified peninsula flag gave Thomas Bach goosebumps, the International Olympic Committee president told Reuters on Saturday.

Kim Yo Jong has been rapidly rising within the North's power structure and is believed to be in charge of shaping her brother's public persona.
