Historic Kim-Moon Meeting Occurs, as S. Korea’s Foreign Minister Credits Trump

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in held a historic meeting on Friday, with Kim becoming the first North Korean leader to visit South Korea.

BBC captured video of Kim stepping over the border at the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea.

And CNN‘s Elizabeth Landers tweeted out a transcript of the brief remarks between Kim and Moon at the border.

The two countries have agreed to end their decades-long war later this year, and both committed to complete denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea’s foreign minister, Kang Kyung-wha, told CNN this week that she believes President Trump deserves credit for bringing Kim to the negotiating table.

South Korea’s foreign minister has said she believes President Donald Trump is largely responsible for bringing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the negotiating table.

Speaking ahead of Friday’s historic summit between the leaders of North and South Korea, Kang Kyung-wha told CNN that the US President had played a significant role in bringing the two sides together.

“Clearly, credit goes to President Trump,” Kang told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in Seoul. “He’s been determined to come to grips with this from day one.”

Political scientist Ian Bremmer tweeted on Friday morning that Trump, Moon, Kim, and Chinese President Xi Jinping deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
