Pence: 'No daylight' between USA, allies on North Korea

They both donned the red, white, and blue Team USA winter jackets.

Pence avoided an encounter Friday with Kim Yong Nam, leaving the hotel after a five-minute stay.

A spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday slammed CNN for a story it published about Kim Jong Un's sister, "stealing the show" at the Winter Olympics. The meeting would be followed by a lunch hosted by the South Korean president.

Abe said it would be important to conduct the US-South Korea joint war games, codenamed Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, as scheduled, Xinhua news agency cited the Blue House official as saying.

"The US will not allow the propaganda charade by the North Korean regime to go unchallenged on the world stage", Pence tweeted on Saturday.

The meeting in the Cheong Wa Dae was held in a "friendly" mood, where the two sides exchanged their views on a wide range of issues, including inter-Korean ties and other matters concerning the Korean Peninsula, according to the spokesperson.

He said war had forged "the core of the bond" between the US and South Korea and that helps explains "why there is no daylight and there will be no daylight" between the two. The delegation is expected to head back to the North later Sunday.

Cyber security experts had warned of potential attacks on the Winter Olympics, with both North Korea and Russian Federation touted as possible sources. The vice president also drew criticism from some openly gay members of Team USA, who questioned his role at the Olympics due to his anti-LGBT views.

On the eve of the opening ceremony, the North carried out a massive military parade in Pyongyang to mark the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army and demonstrated what appeared to be ICBMs. South Korean president Moon Jae-in was spotted with North Korean representatives, which included Kim Yo-jong, sister of the supreme leader.

The vice president said he "reaffirmed" the United States' commitment to a denuclearized North Korea during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
