    Kim said that a new history has begun. In the guestbook, he wrote, " new history begins now." Both leaders made history as they decided to meet for the summit on the nuclear crisis.

    Moon briefly stepped into North Korea ahead of the summit. Kim, on the other hand, made history when he crossed over into South Korea to meet Moon. He became the first North Korean leader to set foot in the South since the Korean war ended 65 years back.

    The leaders of North and South Korea will hold a historic summit in the demilitarised zone that has divided the two nations since 1953. Friday's summit and Kim's planned meeting with President Donald Trump in May or early June were arranged after Kim recently expressed a wiliness to put his nuclear program up for negotiation after a year of nuclear and missile tests.

    The talks on the southern side of the border village of Panmunjom are expected to focus on North Korea's nuclear program.
