Drones Grounded At Opening Ceremony - Not On Tape Delay

Countdown for PyeongChang opening ceremony 2018 Winter Olympics: Opening Ceremony Live Updates

The countries are cooperating for a series of conciliatory measures, including having their athletes parade together for the first time in 11 years at the opening ceremony last night. But privately, officials said, Pence expressed concern to Moon about his more conciliatory tone toward North Korea.

"We are not going to comment on the issue".

Meanwhile, in South Korea, there was the realization of the divide between an older generation who may still dream of reconciliation and younger people who are more cynical.

The other North Korean athletes participating in the games are three cross-country skiers, two short-track speed skaters, a pair of figure skaters and 12 female hockey players who helped form the Koreas' first-ever joint Olympic team with South Korean players.

North and South Korean leaders swapped warm handshakes and smiles at Friday's opening ceremony, enabling the International Olympic Committee to present the Games as enablers of peace and take the media spotlight away from a Russian doping scandal that has plagued it for years.

US Vice President Mike Pence sat just feet apart from the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during the Winter Olympics opening ceremony, but refused to interact.

The Winter Olympics typically see a bit more ratings vacillation than its summer counterpart.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un were not among those present. That display of unity comes after sustained overtures made by South Korea's president Moon Jae-in.
