The event made the headlines as the Korean and world media kept a close eye on its build-up and eventual occurrence.
Here is a look at the headlines that the newspapers in the Korean Peninsula carried on the historic summit:'Inter-Korean summit offers a chance for a new era of peace'
From North Korea:
Korean Central News Agency or KCNA (North Korean state media): 'Kim Jong Un Leaves Pyongyang for North-South Summit Meeting and Talks'
The KCNA, however, also carried a news headlined 'Anti-Reunification Moves against Aspiration of Nation' accusing conservatives in South Korea of "working hard to stoke discord and antagonism among compatriots while painting a black picture of the DPRK's positive efforts for mending the inter-Korean relations".
The Pyongyang Times didn't carry any news on the summit as of 2.11 pm local time in North Korea.
