SEOUL, June 30 (MENA) - The leaders of the two Koreas and the US gathered for the first time Sunday at the border village of Panmunjom, making history in Korean Peninsula issues, Yonhap reported.

Trump and Kim met at the Military Demarcation Line, respectively on the South Korean and North Korean side.

After a brief greeting across the MDL, Trump and Kim walked several steps into North Korea, after which they came back to the South Korean side. Moon then joined Trump and Kim.

After a short talk, the three moved into the conference facility on the South’s side of Panmunjom.

Before Moon joined the gathering, Kim was quoted as saying “let’s resolve the past and move forward,” while Trump reiterated that significant progress had been made in North Korean issues.

The Trump-Kim meeting was arranged, according to Trump, rapidly after a Twitter message from the US president while he was in Osaka, Japan for the G-20 Summit.
