Kim Jong Un leaves for inter-Korean summit: KCNA

Seoul (AFP) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un left Pyongyang early Friday to meet the South’s president Moon Jae-in at the Demilitarized Zone that divides their countries for a historic summit, the North’s state media reported.

The meeting on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom will be only the third of its kind since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

“Kim Jong Un will open-heartedly discuss with Moon Jae-in all the issues arising in improving inter-Korean relations and achieving peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean peninsula,” the state KCNA news agency said.
