Olympic Athletes Will Still Get Free McDonald's Food

Olympic Athletes Will Still Get Free McDonald's Food

"We are here today because the Pyeongchang Olympics, a pure sports events, has turned into propaganda for the North Korean regime, Kim Jong Un's regime, that is against our will", said Kyung Hye Kim.

In 1951, 17-year-old Jack Keep enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and in early 1953 was assigned to Task Force 77 as a petty officer aboard a ship patrolling the North Korean coast. Pence has said that he is open to meeting with North Korean officials during his visit.

At the age of 30, Kim Yo Jong is quite possibly the most powerful woman in North Korea.

"The Korean Women's Hockey Team will not compete in Nike uniforms", the Nike spokesperson said in a statement.

Kim and his entourage including Kim Yo-Jong, the sister of North Korean leader, were welcomed by South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyun at Incheon International Airport.

"The grievances that the world has about North Korea are very legitimate".

Kim Yo Jong shook hands with Moon at the beginning of the ceremony.

Beyond the Games, however, it is not clear how the typically unstable relationship between Pyeongyang and Seoul and its allies will continue.

Cops arrested him for aggravated harassment and stalking, and he was still in custody as of Thursday night. The website said he'd been sending messages via social media threatening to kill her and her family.

And on Friday, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong, became the first member of the North's ruling family to visit the South.

The North and South held summits in Pyongyang in 2000 and 2007, both hosted by Kim Jong Il.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife arrived after the handshakes.

That continued state of high tension stood at odds with the optimism of International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach, who cheered the joint entry of Korean athletes to the opening ceremony as "a powerful message of peace to the world". North Korea has never admitted this systematic mass abduction nor, of course, apologized for it. Without US engagement with North Korea, Pyongyang at some point in the future could trade the products of its nuclear and missile programs with other rogue states, such as Iran, or with terrorist groups such as Daesh (the self-proclaimed IS), in order to obtain hard currency.

American officials attempted to paint a rosier picture of Friday's ceremony as showing solidarity among allies.

The opening ceremony saw North Korea athletes march under the same flag as South Korea, part of a mini-detente in the lead up to the festivities that saw the resumption of talks that had stalled for more than two years.

"He [Pence] could have sat with the USA delegation and avoided the box but he chose not to. knowing the North Koreans would be seated behind him", said a US official. "You pair her with Lindsey Vonn, you're talking about a one-two punch that's as potentially impactful and dominant as any we've seen at the Olympics in a really, really long time", Reiter said.
