North Korean Leader's Cross-Border Walk for Peace

It was a historic gesture for ending decades of uneasy armistice conditions, as well as attempting to ease longstanding Korean peninsula tensions.
For the first time since US aggression on North Korea in the early 1950s, a DPRK leader walked across the border separating North from South, a significant gesture for peace and unity on the peninsula.
On Friday, the North Korea Times, the nation's oldest online news service, said DPRK leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in began historic inter-Korean talks in Panmunjom's truce village.
Kim crossed "the demarcation line into the South Korean half of the DMZ to meet" with his counterpart for summit talks.
Topics include formally ending the 1950s war, improving inter-Korean relations, and denuclearizing the peninsula, among other issues.
