Kim Jong Un, Moon hold historic meeting

South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived Friday morning in the border village of Panmunjom for his first summit with Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Moon's motorcade came to the South Korean side of Panmunjom around 30 minutes before Kim's scheduled arrival in the border village at 9:30 a.m. local time (0030 GMT).

Before leaving his office, Moon got off his black sedan for minutes to say hello to and shake hands with ordinary people waiting just outside the presidential compound, called Blue House, to wish for the success of the third-ever inter-Korean summit.

The Moon-Kim summit is to be held at Peace House, a three-story building on the South Korean side of the truce village. Kim would become the first DPRK leader to step onto South Korean soil since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The first and second inter-Korean summits were held in Pyongyang, the DPRK capital, in 2000 and 2007, respectively.

Kim left Pyongyang for Panmunjom earlier in the day to attend the summit, according to the DPRK's Korean Central News Agency.
