Trump daughter at Olympics 'to pressure Kim'

By Carla White

Ivanka Trump has told South Korea's President that she will use her visit to the Winter Olympics to call for maximum pressure on Kim Jong-un to halt North Korea's nuclear programme.

The daughter of the US President is leading the US delegation at this weekend's closing ceremony for the Pyeongchang Games.

South Korean leader Moon Jae-in, however, highlighted at a banquet at the presidential compound how the Olympics have served as a vehicle for dialogue between the two Korean nations.

The banquet's start was delayed by about half-an-hour as Mr Moon and Ms Trump held a private meeting.
