North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in to the North as dialogue among the rival countries countinues during the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Kim’s special emissary, his sister Kim Yo Jong, handed the oral invitation during a lunch meeting with Moon at Seoul’s Blue House, spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said.
The spokesman said Moon replied that the two countries should continue to work toward improving their relationship so a summit could take place.
He said Moon too called for the U.S. and North koreans to renew communications.
