Historic North-South Summit for National Reconciliation and Unity, Peace and Prosperity

Kim Jong Un Has Talks with Moon Jae In at "House of Peace"


Talks between the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and President Moon Jae In took place at the "House of Peace" in the south side portion of Panmunjom.

Present at the talks from the north side were Kim Yong Chol, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, and Kim Yo Jong, first vice department director of the C.C., WPK.

Present from the south side were Im Jong Sok, presidential chief of staff at Chongwadae, and So Hun, director of the Intelligence Service.

At the talks both sides had a candid and open-hearted exchange of views on the matters of mutual concern including the issues of improving the north-south relations, ensuring peace on the Korean Peninsula and the denuclearization of the peninsula.

Referring to the very significant meeting with Moon Jae In at Panmunjom, a symbol of division and confrontation,
Kim Jong Un said that the meeting at such special place would mark an occasion of giving once again hope and dream for the future to all people.

He said he felt once again the national mission and duty to usher in a new era of peace and reunification after putting an end to the history of division and confrontation and that he came today with the thought that he would fire a signal flare at the starting line writing a new history.

Moon Jae In said the weather was nice as if it congratulated today's meeting and that the moment Chairman of the State Affairs Commission Kim Jong Un crossed the Demarcation Line, Panmunjom became a symbol of peace, not a symbol of division.

Paying deep respects to the great decision of Kim Jong Un who produced the significant meeting like today, Moon Jae In hoped that open-hearted dialogue would be continued to build confidence between themselves.

Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae In reached a consensus of views on the agenda items and agreed to meet often and sincerely discuss the pending issues and the important matters for the nation in the future and thus make joint efforts to wisely open up a new history of the north-south relations and further develop the good trend for peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

Before the start of the talks, in commemoration of the historic north-south summit meeting Kim Jong Un wrote in a visitor's book at the "House of Peace" that "A new history begins now - at the starting point of history, an era of peace.
