Kim Jong Un crosses border into South Korea

Watch North Korea leader Kim Jong Un becomes the first North Korean leader to cross the border dividing the two Koreas since the Korean War more than 60 years ago. Kim Jong Un met up with South Korean President Moon Jae-in for a historic summit. Kim walked towards the south, shooked hands with Moon at the border, crossed to the south, invited Moon to the north, both walked back to the north for a quick photo shoot before crossing back to the south again.

Hopefully there is hope.
