SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who met South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday in a historic summit, said a new age in inter-Korean relations has begun.

“A new history starts now. An age of peace, from the starting point of history,” Mr. Kim wrote in Korean in a guest book in the South’s Peace House before talks began.

President Moon greeted Mr. Kim at the military demarcation line in Panmunjom where the men smiled and shook hands.

In an unplanned move, Mr. Kim invited Mr. Moon to step briefly across into North Korea, before the two leaders crossed back into South Korea holding hands.
