"We want to see President Moon become a protagonist in opening a new chapter for reunification and leave great footprints in history", she said.

The spokesman says Moon also called for a quick resumption of dialogue between the United States and North Korea. They were followed by Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa.

Kim Yo Jong arrived in South Korea on Friday with Kim Yong Nam, the North's nominal head of state, for the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in the alpine resort town of Pyeongchang.

During the 2000s, the two countries' athletes marched together at the opening and closing ceremonies of several global sporting events, including the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

During their summit in South Korea on Friday, Abe told Moon that the military drills between Seoul and Washington should be carried out to change North Korea's behavior, the office said.

And as the South appeared to look favorably on warming ties on the Korean Peninsula, Pence insisted Saturday "there is no daylight" among the United States and allies South Korea and Japan in intensifying pressure on the North over its nuclear and missile programs. "I don't think you talk geopolitics over speed skating", the second official said.

North and South Korean athletes marched together at the opening ceremony, the culmination of months of work by Seoul, which seeks to use the Olympics to ease tension spurred by North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Kim Yo Jong, 30, was elected to the politburo previous year, but remains little known outside North Korea and has not appeared much in public until now.

Roh's successor, Lee Myung-bak, came from the other side of the political spectrum and took a hardline stance on intra-Korean relations, as did President Park Geun-hye, who came from the same conservative camp. Moon shook Kim's hand; Pence stared forward and refused to engage with her.

The vice president also met with North Korean defectors while in Pyeongtaek. Many in South Korea are uneasy over the unified team-and annoyed at the fact that some of their female Olympians will lose playing time to ice hockey players from across the DMZ.

At the meeting Saturday, Moon was joined by his national security director, intelligence chief, chief of staff and the unification minister, according to the Associated Press.
