Kim Makes History, Walks Into South Korea To Begin Peace Talks

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un became the first head of that country to step foot in South Korea since 1953 on Friday. And he literally did it by walking across the border. It happened at the beginning of a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.

The two leaders are set to meet all day Friday, local time. They're expected to talk about a potential peace settlement and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. A source told Newsy Thursday the leaders were expected to sign a peace deal, in addition they were expected to "sign a broad agreement on denuclearization, though the exact terms of what that means have not yet been worked out."

Of course, take that with a grain of skepticism because really anything could happen. 

This meeting comes after months of diplomatic talks and as Kim prepares to meet with President Donald Trump.
