Vice President Mike Pence seems to be open to the possibility of meeting with North Korean officials during his trip to the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

"With regard to any interaction with the North Korean delegation, I have not requested a meeting, but we'll see what happens," Pence said.

Pence spoke with reporters Monday during a stop in Alaska on his way to Japan and South Korea.

During his remarks, he reiterated that "all options are on the table" when it comes to dealing with North Korea and its weapons program. And he promised to use his trip to tell the truth about Pyongyang at every stop.

Pence and his wife are leading the U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The opening ceremony for the games is Friday.
