PYEONGCHANG, South Korea: North Korea has emerged as the early favorite to grab one of the Winter Olympics' most important medals: the diplomatic gold.In barely a month since North Korean leader Kim Jong Un surprised the world and said his nation was ready to join the games, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has delayed military exercises, feted Kim's sister at the Pyeongchang Olympics and given conditional consent to a bilateral summit in the North.U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who attended Friday's opening ceremony along with the North Koreans, said "no daylight" existed between the United States, South Korea and Japan on the need to isolate North Korea.He said the North was using the Winter Games for crude propaganda.To pave the way for the North's participation at Pyeongchang, South Korea had delayed the annual exercises with U.S. forces, which usually take place between February and March, until after the Olympics.When a ferry carrying North Koreans to the Winter Games docked in South Korea last week, the North asked its hosts for the fuel needed to get it home, Seoul's Unification Ministry said.
