Mr Moon said the Koreas should "make it happen" and encouraged the north to return to negotiations with the US.

North Korea's nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam also partook in the historic luncheon with Moon.

The recent detente, dramatic evidence of which was on show at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, came despite an acceleration in the North's weapons programme past year and pressure from Seoul's allies in Washington.

The invitation, delivered by Kim's visiting sister Kim Yo Jong, said Kim was willing to meet the South's leader "at the earliest date possible", said a spokesman for the presidential Blue House.

"I will say what needs to be said", Mr Abe had told his aides before leaving Japan for his third bilateral meeting with Mr Moon, reported the Nikkei Asian Review.

Moon did not immediately accept the invitation.

The North Koreans, wearing full-length red jumpsuits and arranged in tidy rows on each side of the rink, at times competed for the crowd's attention against mini-skirted dancers from the South, dressed completely in black and knee-high boots. The sign reads: "Slave Olympics".

The meeting led to a series of reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War, as well as the launch of a joint factory park in the North's border town of Kaesong in 2004.

Past "charm offensives" have been interpreted as North Korea trying to recoup from crippling sanctions on its nuclear program, or trying to drive a wedge between Seoul and its usa ally. -South Korean war games that North Korea claims are preparation for invasion.

The International Olympic Committee has confirmed today that systems including the internet and TV series were affected by the hack during the opening ceremony of the Games on Friday. They were also served North Korean-style fermented fish and white "kimchi" or fermented cabbage. The article reiterated that the North's decision to send delegates to the South had nothing to do with an attempt to approach the United States for talks. South Korea wants a northern neighbor without nukes; North Korea vows to keep its weapons until the United States discards its "hostile" policies against the country.

"We are investigating the cause and we will share more information".

One: Bump said it wasn't his "intent" to be a "fanboy" of the Kim regime. She was photographed sitting behind Vice President Mike Pence during the ceremony.

South Korea has been using the Pyeongchang Games to break the ice with the reclusive North, which has been trading nuclear threats with the United States recently.

The two Koreas have a rocky and sometimes violent history at the Blue House.

South Korea's top diplomat promised to pull through new diplomatic challenges actively and creatively Monday after North Korea invited the South's president to an inter-Korean summit.

The Korean women's hockey team, the first in Olympic history to combine players from North and South, took the ice Saturday night for their debut game in front of a raucous, sellout crowd on another historic night mixing sports and politics on an global stage.
