PYONGYANG, Jul 1, 2019, AP. North Korea’s state media described leader Kim Jong Un’s meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) as ”an amazing event” in the border village it notes is a symbol of the Korean Peninsula’s division, reported The Korea Times.

The Korean Central News Agency reports that the two leaders expressed great satisfaction over the results of their talks. Also included in the state media report is a description of Kim exchanging ”warm greetings” with South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in.

Trump and Kim agreed to restart negotiations designed to denuclearize the Korean peninsula, a point included in the state media recap of the event.
