SEOUL - Ivanka Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, urged South Korean President Moon Jae-in not to ease the U.S.-led campaign of "maximum pressure" against North Korea until the Korean peninsula is denuclearized, cautioning Moon over his rapprochement policy with Pyongyang.

In their dinner at the presidential Blue House on Friday, Ivanka Trump emphasized that the two countries should remain aligned in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile program. Ivanka, who is a senior advisor to the U.S. President, is on a four-day visit to the country where she will attend the closing ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games on Sunday.
