    South Korean President Moon Jae-in shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during their meeting at the truce village of Panmunjom inside the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, South Korea, April 27, 2018.

    South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met for a historic summit on Friday at the border truce village of Panmunjom.

    This marked the first time that Kim has crossed the North Korean border to meet with Moon.

    Meeting up at the border, Kim and Moon smiled and greeted each other with a handshake. They later posed for photos on both sides of the border before walking off to join a parade.

    This meeting comes after the thaw in relations that took place on the Korean Peninsula leading up to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, in which North Korea agreed to participate in the games and join its southern neighbor as a unified Korea.
