US-North Korea : Trump and Kim Jong-Un in symbolic DMZ meeting

US President Donald Trump has shared a symbolic handshake with North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN in the heavily fortified zone dividing the two Koreas.

Mr Trump became the first sitting us President to cross into North Korea after meeting Mr Kim at the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).

Critics have dismissed it as pure Political Theatre, but others say it could set the scene for future talks.

Their last summit ended abruptly with no progress on Denuclearisation talks.

Speaking to reporters alongside Mr Kim at the DMZ, President Trump said it was a "truly historic" moment and that he was "proud to step over the line" between the Koreas.

Mr Kim, in a rare statement to the press, said the meeting was a Symbol of the "excellent" relationship between Him and Mr Trump.
