Reports: Ivanka Trump to receive VIP welcome at Pyeongchang

Washington (dpa) - South Korea is set to roll out the red carpet for Ivanka Trump at the closing ceremony for the Winter Olympics.

The government in Seoul is preparing a VIP welcome for US President Donald Trump‘s daughter, South Korea‘s Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported on Monday.

The government will try to woo Ivanka in an attempt to soften up Trump so he gives approval to a mooted visit by President Moon Jae In to the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, the South Korean newspaper reported.

Ivanka works as an unpaid White House advisor and has been dubbed the "first daughter" for her non-traditional role in Trump‘s administration and apparent influence over the US president.

The government in Seoul is expected to try to use Ivanka‘s visit as leverage to move forward with talks between the Koreas in an attempt to defuse rising tensions over North Korea‘s nuclear programme.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited Moon to Pyongyang earlier this month.

"Since President Trump cannot make it to Pyeongchang, Ivanka is his proxy and envoy. It‘s important to win her support to realize the inter-Korean summit," the Chosun Ilbo cited a key lawmaker as saying.

Vice President Mike Pence travelled to South Korea for the opening ceremony.

The president himself has not shown any great interest in the Winter Games so far.

Ivanka‘s trip to Pyeongchang was reported on February 6 by CNN, but the White House has not officially announced it.
