S. Korean president Moon Jae-in and DPRK's leader Kim jong-un meet at Panmunjom for the Inter-Korean Summit on Friday, the first to be held in South Korea, making Kim the first DPRK leader to step on South Korean soil since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

S. Korean president Moon Jae-in (L) and DPRK's top leader Kim jong-un (R) shake hands at Panmunjom.



Leaders of two Koreas meet at Panmunjom at 9:30 am local time (0030 GMT) before Kim crossed the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) to the South Korean side of Panmunjom.

Moon welcomes Kim with an official ceremony.


The two leaders jointly inspect a South Korean honor guard as part of an official ceremony to welcome the DPRK’s leader.

DPRK top leader Kim Jong-un writes in the guestbook: "A new history begins now. An age of peace, from the starting point of history."
