Vice President Mike Pence skipped a dinner ahead of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony Friday where he had been reportedly due to share a table with South Korea's president and the North's ceremonial head of state, Seoul said.

Seating plans shown on television had Pence seated directly opposite the North's Kim Yong Nam at the reception in Pyeongchang, but a presidential Blue House spokesman said he arrived late, "exchanged greetings with those seated at the head table, and left without sitting down."
