Kim Jong Un receives letter from South Korean President


Seoul, South Korea (CNN)A letter from South Korean President Moon Jae-in was delivered to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday in Pyongyang during a visit by a high-ranking South Korean delegation, North Korea’s state-run news agency KCNA reported.

Earlier Monday, Kim hosted a dinner for the delegation, according to a South Korean government official. Kim and the delegation discussed improving North-South relations and easing military tensions on the Korean peninsula, KCNA reported.
It’s believed to be the first time the young leader has spoken face-to-face with officials from the South since he took power in 2011. Among those Kim met were South Korea’s national security chief, Chung Eui-yong, and the country’s spy chief, Suh Hoon.
Their trip north is part of Moon’s attempt to broker a diplomatic solution to North Korea’s nuclear weapons program in the wake of the thaw brought about by North Korea’s attendance at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics last month.
