Kim Jong Un's Sister Makes First Appearance In South Korea For Olympics


Ahn Young-joon/AP The sister of North Korea's leader, Kim Yo Jong, and other high-ranking officials from Pyongyang arrived in Seoul Friday to begin a three-day trip that will include a meeting with South Korea's president.


After being greeted at the airport by the head of South Korea's Unification Ministry, the delegation went from Seoul to the Olympic host city of Pyeongchang by high-speed train.


The dignitaries are expected to join other foreign visitors — including Vice President Mike Pence and Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe — at the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics.


Pence, during earlier stops on his trip to Asia, has responded to questions about a potential meeting by saying, "We'll see."


He also brought along a highly symbolic visitor to the Olympics opening — Fred Warmbier.


He is the father of an American college student who was imprisoned in North Korea for attempting to steal a propaganda banner.


"Whatever images may emerge against the powerful backdrop and idealism of the Olympics, North Korea has to accept change.
