But the two sides rebuffed his efforts to organize a meeting between them during the games.

Mattis said South Korea's defence minister Admiral Song Young-moo gave assurance that Seoul's alliance with the USA was unaffected by Pyongyang's overtures to Moon.

Images from the lunch meeting at the Blue House, which was broadcast live on South Korean TV, showed Moon sat in front of Kim Yo Jong, rather than Kim Yong Nam, technically the more senior official present in the meeting and head of the North Korean delegation.

This is the first time a member of the Kim family visits the south since the peninsula was divided in two.

US Vice-President Mike Pence, who has left South Korea for Washington, said the United States, South Korea and Japan were in complete agreement on isolating North Korea over its nuclear weapons programme.

Pence did say, however, that Moon shared with him details of his meeting with North Korean leaders, without elaborating.

The United States insisted it would continue its policy of exerting worldwide pressure on North Korea in an effort to get it to abandon its nuclear program.

An editorial in the Yomiuri Newspaper read: "What can not be overlooked is that Moon did not directly demand North Korea to abandon its nuclear development".

"I think it is different from the last 20 years", Pence said, according to the Post.
