Two Koreas Set April 27 for Kim Jong Un's Historic Walk South
Updated on

Kim Jong Un could become the first North Korean leader in history to enter South Korea in just over four weeks, when he steps across the heavily fortified border for a summit with President Moon Jae-in.

The April 27 meeting on the southern side of the demilitarized zone will be the first between leaders of the two nations in 11 years. Leaders of the two nations -- which are still technically at war -- have only met twice since the peninsula was divided in 1948.
