SEOUL, South Korea – The North Korean leader and South Korean president, smiling, exchanged a warm handshake on the military demilitarization line dividing the Korean peninsula just before the historic interim summit began.

“I’m glad to meet you,” said Mun Jie-in to Kim Jong Un, who immediately became the first North Korean leader to step on South Korean territory since the end of the Korean War (1950-1953).

Earlier, the South Korean president also walked a few steps on the North Korean side of the border while holding hands with Kim.
