Kim Jong Un walks into South Korea to shake hands with Moon Jae-in
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un crossed the border into South Korea on Friday to meet President Moon Jae-in for an historic summit.
It was the first time a member of the Kim dynasty set foot on South Korean soil since the end of the Korean War in 1953. The two men shook hands and smiled for news cameras.
There are three key topics on the agenda: the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the improvement of bilateral relations, and a formal peace settlement -- the Korean War ended with a ceasefire so technically the two sides are still at war.
After entering the Peace House for the inter-Korean summit, Kim Jong Un wrote in the guest book "a new history begins now" and "an age of peace, at the starting point of history."
The White House has issued a statement on the Moon-Kim meeting:

Trump and Kim Jong Un in the coming weeks."
