S.Korea seeks understanding for breaking NK sanctions

To facilitate the attendance of several senior functionaries from the North, South Korea has allowed some exemptions to sanctions imposed on North Korea over its nuclear programme, although the foreign ministry in Seoul said these would apply only during the Pyeongchang games.

"We are working closely with the U.S. and others to ensure that there will be no violations of U.N. Security Council sanctions resolutions in regard to the visit by the high-level North Korea delegation", said Cho Tae-yul, South Korea's ambassador to the U.N.

Analysts say Kim Yo Jong's inclusion in the Olympic delegation shows North Korea's ambition to use the Olympics to break out from diplomatic isolation by improving relations with the South, which it could use as a bridge for approaching the United States.

The war-separated rivals are cooperating for a series of conciliatory measures during the Olympics, which Seoul sees as an opportunity to ease tensions with Pyongyang following an extended period of animosity over its nuclear weapons and missiles program.

North Korea held a massive military parade in Pyongyang on Thursday, showing off the regime's military capabilities ahead of the start of the Winter Olympics across the border in Pyeongchang. Kim Yo Jong is believed to be a trusted adviser to her brother, but it's not clear if she's being sent to deliver a message on his behalf.

Kim Jong-Il fathered both Kim Jong-Un and Kim Yo-Jong with his third partner, former dancer Ko Yong-Hui.

North and South Korea will march together under one flag at Friday's opening ceremony and field a unified women's ice hockey team. Kim Jong Un told the crowd that the parade displayed North Korea's might as a "global military power".

According to CNN, Kim Jong-Un's sister Kim Yo-Jong, who is 30-year-old, was in 2017 promoted to the Politburo of North Korea.

Meanwhile, North Korea's taekwondo demonstration squad will hold four joint performances with their South Korean counterparts to celebrate the February 9-25 Winter Games. "I guess you will see the same here on Friday".
