Kim Jong Un meets with South Korean officials

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un hosted a dinner for a high-ranking South Korean delegation in Pyongyang, according to a South Korean government official.
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 South Korean President Moon Jae-in’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.
