(From CBS News)
Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday evening there is “no daylight” between the U.S. and South Korea, despite their different approaches to engagement with North Korea at the Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games. South Korean President Moon Jae-in had a luncheon earlier Saturday with the North Koreans, while Pence declined opportunities for contact with South Korea’s neighbor to the north.
Moon provided Pence with a readout of the historic luncheon between the North and South. On the flight home from his Asian-Pacific trip flying somewhere over South Korea, Pence told reporters aboard Air Force Two that he appreciated Moon’s transparency and perspective on North Korea, but reiterated that the U.S. and South Korea will “continue to stand strong and to work in a coordinated way to bring maximum economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea.”
