The sister of North Korean despot Kim Jong Un and South Korea’s president shook hands in a historic moment for the two countries during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on Friday -- but no such interaction occurred between any Hermit Kingdom representatives and Vice President Pence despite two close encounters.

Kim Yo Jong, the sister of Kim Jong Un, and President Moon Jae-in were introduced by International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach before shaking hands with each other and other world leaders.

The pair then sat down just a few seats away from Pence, but Pence and Kim Yo Jong did not interact nor appear to look at each other.

Earlier, at a VIP reception before the ceremony, Pence went around a table and shook hands with all the dignitaries except Kim Yong Nam, North Korea's 90-year-old nominal head of state.
