Korea summit LIVE: Kim Jong-un promises a ‘new beginning’ for North and South as leaders meet 

Kim Jong-Un has become the first North Korean leader to set foot in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953 for a historic peace summit.

The North Korean leader exchanged a warm greeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in the truce village of Panmunjom.

In a highly symbolic moment, Moon then led Kim by hand to cross into the South for the first time ever.
