It has been a historic day on the Korean peninsula as the leaders of both North and South Korea met ahead of their three day summit.
The meeting which has seen thousands of North Korean’s come out in force to support the idea of unity between the two countries comes as both nations look to resolve disputes that will see a permanent peace between them.
In a moment that was televised across the world both the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his South Korean counterpart Moon-Jae embraced in a show of respect at Pyongyang Airport.
Speakiing upon his arrival President Moon-Jae said he hoped the summit would see the two nations engage in talks that would bring “irreversible, permanent peace”
The South Korean President also said he hoped the historic meeting with his North Korean counterpart would bring better dialogue between the two countries as well as the US.
He also stated that he will engage in talks that will focus on the prospect of denuclearisation on the Peninsula.
It is understood both leaders want to decrease tensions by agreeing to a peace treaty that will officially put an end to the war.
However in order for both leaders to obtain that objective they both will have to engage in lengthy negotiations with Washington, who are also calling for denuclearisation on the peninsula.
