International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said the display sent "a powerful message of peace".

Pyeongchang Winter Olympics organisers confirmed on Sunday that the Games had fallen victim to a cyber-attack during Friday's opening ceremony, but they refused to reveal the source.

"The point is, no pressure comes off until they are actually doing something that the alliance believes represents a meaningful step toward denuclearization", Pence was quoted as saying. "But if you want to talk, we'll talk".

Pence and his wife were spotted sitting adjacent to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, during the opening ceremony of the games.

"It is too early to say if. using the Olympics in a way to reduce tensions, if that is going to have any traction once the Olympics are over, we can't say right now", Mattis said.

If the inter-Korean meeting at the highest level is to be convened in Pyongyang, it would be the first in a decade following the ones in 2000 and 2007, held in the North's capital during the years of the so-called "Sunshine Policy", which marked the closest relations to date between the two countries.
