Winter Olympics 2018 opening ceremony - STUNNING pictures from Pyeongchang historic event

Live from PyeongChang: Tokyo 2020 House Uses Tech to Promote Games

He called for the return of all Japanese abducted by North Korea in the 1970s and '80s, according to Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura. Here's the latest from Friday's events in PyeongChang.

"Samsung Electronics delivered over 4,000 Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition - a special edition of Galaxy Note8 - to the IOC and Pyeongchang Organizing Committee".

The meeting comes after the US warned against engagement with Pyongyang. That was a one-time fix.

The Winter Olympics opened with a spectacular ceremony on Friday, attended by several heads of state who witnessed the joint march of North and South Korean athletes, as Games systems played up.

In his New Year's address, Kim Jong Un extended an olive branch, vowing to prepare for his nation's participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

With nods to the country's landmarks and ancient culture as well as its potential to lead the world in future technological innovations, the opening ceremony at Olympic Stadium featured athletes from 91 countries, including a delegation from North Korea that marched into Olympic Stadium with athletes from South Korea.

"It really was a meaningful moment", said the Seoul woman.

Short track speedskating will feature men's 1,500m semis and finals featuring three-time US Olympic medallist J.R. Celski. "All competitions are running as planned". The performer's composure was insanely good, as you can see in the picture below. Luge athlete Erin Hamlin waved the flag with gusto, enjoying a moment that generated controversy earlier Friday when U.S. speedskater Shani Davis complained that he wasn't chosen.

The International Olympic committee decided in January to allow the national Olympic committees of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and South Korea to form a unified women's ice hockey team. NBC said a total of 17.2 million experienced the Olympics if viewers of the NBCSN cable network and digital users are added in, which would make the decrease 14 percent. "But now that the team is together we are just one team". NBCSN also offered Olympics coverage Thursday.

Points for the South American team's uniforms for their fun fedoras and even better cream-colored ponchos.

Pence avoided the North Korean official entirely.

Mr Moon has previously said he will need reassurance from the North that it would help resolve the nuclear crisis. Despite recent injuries, he won bronze in this event at the world cup in Seoul.

However, Pence could not avoid being seated close to both Kim Yong-nam and Kim Yo-jong in the VIP box at the Opening Ceremony. While the Parade of Nations at the Summer Olympics features bright and elaborate uniforms, the freezing temperatures for the Winter Games meant big coats, beanies and boots.

Bach didn't mention the Russians during his traditional welcoming speech, but he didn't have to. "Only then will your lifetime memories be the memories of a true and worthy champion".

Russia's athletes entered Friday's ceremony behind a neutral flag after their team was suspended over a doping scandal.
