Trump meets Kim at North Korea’s DMZ border

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday shook hands over the demarcation line in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.

According to details, US President Trump stepped over the line to join Kim, becoming the first sitting US president to enter the North Korean border area. The leaders then stepped back into South Korea.

The brief meeting was held at the demilitarized zone (DMZ) situated between the North and South Korea.

“President Trump has just crossed the demarcation line becoming the first [US] president to visit us. This proves his willingness to work for a better future,” Kim told reporters.

Standing side by side with Kim, Trump called his visit to the North a “great honour” and a great moment for the whole world.

Trump arrived in Seoul late on Saturday for talks with Moon after attending a Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan, during which he made a surprise, spur-of-the-moment offer to meet Kim.

They were later joined by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in what was the first trilateral meeting of US, North and South Korean leaders.
