U.S. President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived at the Demilitarized Zone between the two Koreas on Sunday shortly before 2 a.m. ET to await the arrival of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Before the expected — albeit impromptu — third summit, Trump was expected to be shown relics from the Korean War by South Korean military officials.

Earlier in the day, Moon said the North Korean leader had agreed to Trump’s proposal to meet at the DMZ.

In his announcement, Moon said, “President Trump is the maker of peace in the Korean Peninsula.”

During his news conference in Osaka at the conclusion of the G20 summit one day earlier, Trump made the offer to meet with Kim at the border between the two Koreas, commenting that the North Korean leader “follows my Twitter feed.”

The president added that he would have “no problem” with crossing the border to shake hands with Kim. News wires around the world reported, “Trump could quite possibly become the first U.S. president to actually step over the border into North Korea itself.”
