Kim Jong Un meets South Korean president in historic summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un walked across the border and shook hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday ahead of their historic summit.

After the greeting, a military band played as the two men traversed a red carpet to pose for pictures and greet officials from both North and South Korea.

Kim is the first North Korean leader to have stepped on South Korean soil since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The leaders planned to discuss denuclearization of the North’s rogue weapons program — just weeks ahead of Kim’s anticipated meeting with President Trump.

As a symbol of a hope for future cooperation and a lasting peace between the countries, the leaders will plant a pine tree in Panmunjom, in the demilitarized zone that divides the peninsula.
