Winter Olympics: Australian moguls team confident of Pyeongchang medal success

Winter Olympics: Australian moguls team confident of Pyeongchang medal success

North Korea's head of state will go to Pyeongchang this week for the Winter Olympics, the most senior official to ever visit South Korea.

In Japan, he will meet with Prime Minster Shinzo Abe and USA service members.

Pence is bringing Otto Warmbier's father Fred - the United States student who died in 2017 shortly after he was released from North Korean detention - to the opening ceremony later this week.

When asked by reporters at a stop at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska, Pence stopped short of ruling out a possible meeting with North Korean officials when he travels to the PyeongChang Games in South Korea later this week.

Kim Yong-nam will be the highest level Pyongyang official to visit South Korea since the North's then-number two Hwang Pyong-so attended the closing ceremony of the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon City.

Fred Warmbier, in particular, is scheduled to attend the opening ceremony of the upcoming Olympic Games as a special guest. The plan centers around rallying the global community to further isolate North Korea both diplomatically and economically.

Iranian women take off hijabs in public to protest law
Women who appear in public without the obligatory hijab can face fines and prison sentences ranging from 10 days to two months. Writing on her Facebook page , Sotoudeh said that women should be given the right "to manage" their own bodies.

Overnight Rain and Snow
Light snow will be wrapping up early this morning, but as temps fall below freezing some areas will turn very slick. Icy conditions are expected across portions of Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and western North Carolina .

Pence says he hasn't requested any meeting "but we'll see what happens". Skeptics say that the North is trying to use the Olympics to weaken US -led sanctions and pressure and buy more time to advance its nuclear weapons and missiles program.

However, Seoul's independent sanctions imposed on Pyongyang in 2010 ban North Korean ships from entering South Korean ports.

Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said the ministry was consulting with Washington and others on the possibility of temporarily lifting the ban to facilitate North Korea's proposal and "support a successful hosting of the Olympics".

That set off a rapid series of meetings which saw the two agree to march together at the opening ceremony and form a unified women's ice hockey team, their first for 27 years. "It's good", Won said.

Shim grew up around a high-tension atmosphere between the relations of North Korea and his country.

It came after the hereditary leader Kim Jong-un extended an olive branch to the South in a New Year message, saying he was open to dialogue and could send a team to the Games.

During Pence's week-long trip to Asia, Pence will also encounter friction between Tokyo and Seoul on North Korea and historical issues, as he seeks to counter the isolated regime's provocations and propaganda.
