Trump meets North Korea’s Kim in DMZ

US President Donald Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas on Sunday, shaking hands warmly and both expressing hopes for peace.

It was the third meeting between the two leaders in just over a year and will raise hopes for a revival of stalled nuclear talks. Trump briefly crossed a military demarcation line into the North, becoming the first ever US President to set foot in the country. Moments later Kim joined Trump to step into the South Korean side. South Korea President Moon Jae-in joined the two after their initial handshakes.

Trump arrived in South Korea late on Saturday for talks with Moon after attending a G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, during which he made a surprise offer to meet Kim, who accepted it.
