Olympics: Japan team captain Kodaira to skip opening ceremony

Olympics: Japan team captain Kodaira to skip opening ceremony

The aide noted that Pence "and our team were aware she'd be in attendance".

Two impersonators, bearing striking resemblances to President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, were both booted from the Olympic Games' opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea on Friday. "The VP sat with Moon and Abe in the box after days of meetings with both leaders".

"After Beijing's successful bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, more and more athletes from summer sports have joined us in winter sports and they have been training very hard in snow sports", Gao Zhidan, deputy Chef de Mission of the Chinese delegation, said ahead of the opening ceremony.

North Korea agreed to take part in the Winter Olympic Games after three rounds of inter-Korean dialogue last month that marked the first of their kind in more than two years.

North Korea had said it would hold a big event to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of its military.

Eager to put a reality check on the thaw in relations between the Koreas, Pence met with North Korean defectors on Friday and paid his respects at the Cheonan Memorial in Pyeongtaek, which honours the 46 South Korean sailors killed in a 2010 torpedo attack blamed on the North.

The opening ceremony will be attended by the North Korean leader's sister and other senior officials.

On Thursday, North Korea said its official delegation to the PyeongChang Olympics had no intention of meetings its USA counterpart.

"President Moon and President Trump are completely aligned in their objective for a nuclear free Korean Peninsula", Pence said.

With Russia banned from PyeongChang, 168 "clean" Russian athletes are allowed to compete in the Winter Olympics under a neutral flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russia".

That same year, Corporal Lewis Ewing was stationed at Chuncheon as a helicopter crew chief with the U.S. Army, responsible for maintaining the aircraft that sent supplies to troops on the ground and transported the wounded to hospitals.

But it turns out, the athletes from Bermuda have worn Bermuda shorts at past Olympics opening ceremonies for the Parade of Nations.

And second, United States and North Korean officials this high up the food chain rarely if ever get this close to one another - let alone in the midst of a tense nuclear standoff of the kind we've seen over the past several months.
