Ivanka Trump Will Attend PyeongChang 2018

(ATR) Korean media report that daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, will attend the closing ceremony.

(ATR) Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to United States President Donald Trump, will arrive in Seoul on Friday, according The Korea Times.

The newspaper said that Trump will attend the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Closing Ceremony on Feb. 25 and that full details of her visit have yet to be disclosed. She is expected to arrive on Feb. 23 and meet with South Korean President Jae In Moon during her stay.

The attendance of the U.S. President’s daughter and adviser will be closely monitored by government officials and media alike, as talks of potential U.S. and North Korean diplomacy could be held at the meeting.

Trump’s visit could mark the latest diplomatic coup of these Winter Olympics in South Korea, already ending a stalemate in communication between North and South Korea, uniting athletes from both sides under one flag and having Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, attend the Opening Ceremony.

In a meeting with South Korea’s President Moon, Kim delivered a letter from her brother, inviting Moon to Pyongyang, North Korea for talks.

The IOC has confirmed that International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach will visit North Korea as part of an agreement between the IOC and both North and South Korea. The date of the visit is still to be determined but will happen after the Games conclude Feb. 25.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea for the Opening Ceremony but did not interact with the high-level delegation from North Korea during his stay. On his visit, Pence and Moon reaffirmed maximum sanctions on Pyongyang in search of the denuclearization of the country.
