The invitation was made by Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, during a historic meeting between North and South Korean officials at Seoul's presidential palace Saturday, presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said.

Al Jazeera reported Saturday that the North Korean delegation, now attending the 2018 Winter Olympics being hosted by their southern neighbor, delivered the invitation letter to Moon "at a landmark high-level meeting at the presidential palace in Seoul".

She also delivered a personal invitation from Kim Jong-Un for President Moon Jae-in to visit North Korea sometime this year.

Before Pence arrived, Moon's office announced he will meet with Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The Perry Process included freezing North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes and normalising relations between Pyongyang and Washington.

If the attack were executed, the United States would respond to a nuclear test conducted by North Korea with a focused and targeted strike against one of the nation's facilities - a warning that the nation's actions have consequences, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

North Korea's nominal head of state Kim Yong-nam also attended the luncheon with Mr. Moon.

Past "charm offensives" have been interpreted as North Korea trying to recoup from crippling sanctions on their nuclear programme, or trying to drive a wedge between Seoul and its USA ally. They were seated beside the Moons and next to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife. Estimated to be around 30 years old, she is perhaps the only person to give direct opinions to Kim Jong Un.

US Vice President Mike Pence has said that his country was "ready for any eventuality" with regard to North Korea and warned that "all options were on the table" to deal with Pyongyang's threats.

Meanwhile, relations between South Korea and North Korea have shown promising signs of improvement in recent days. A top North Korean official seemed to rule out a potential meeting with US officials in the North's state-run media on Thursday, but Pence suggested to reporters that it was still a possibility.
