President Moon Jae-in speaks to N. Korean audience of 150,000

문 대통령, 집단체조 北 관람객 15만 명에 인사말

President Moon capped off the second day of the summit by attending perhaps North Korea's most famous cultural product, the Mass Games.
Not only did he attend, he became the first South Korean leader to deliver a speech to a mass North Korean audience, in this case, numbering some 150-thousand people.
We'll now listen to that in its entirety.

Citizens of Pyeongyang, I am very glad to see you all here tonight.

As the president of South Korea, I feel deeply honored to speak to you. As you can see with your own eyes, we are opening a new era together.

My fellow Koreans, Chairman Kim Jong-un and I had an encounter full of meaning at Panmunjeom on April 27th. We had a warm embrace. And today, we have agreed that there will be no more war on the Korean Peninsula. Therefore, we have solemnly announced both to our 80 million fellow Koreans and to the international community that a new era of peace has dawned on the Peninsula.

We have also affirmed the principle of national self-determination, that we ourselves will determine the fate of our people.

Also, we have firmly promised to advance a future of common prosperity, to independently restore our blood-based ties, and to develop inter-Korean relations in a thorough and dramatic way.

This fall, I, President Moon Jae-in, decided to make this trip to Pyeongyang.
Dear citizens of Pyeongyang, Chairman Kim Jong-un and I have agreed specifically to completely eliminate the threat and fear of war on the Korean Peninsula.
In addition, from Mt. Baekdusan to Mt. Hallasan, we promised to leave our future generations this beautiful land, free of nuclear weapons and nuclear threats.

And we will quickly take steps to fundamentally end the suffering of separated families before it's too late.
I send generous applause and thanks to Chairman Kim, who is walking along with me towards a new future.
Dear citizens of Pyeongyang, on this visit, I have witnessed the remarkable development of this city.

I have seen the kind of nation you are trying to build, how much you strive for peace and your bravery in hard times.

Dear fellow citizens, we are great. We are strong. We love peace. And we should live together. We lived together for over 5,000 years and have been separated for 70 years.

I propose today to completely end this 70-year separation and take a big step towards peace.
Chairman Kim and I will firmly join hands and work to build a new fatherland. Let us move into a new future together. I would like to thank the many Pyeongyang citizens, young people, students and children who have warmly welcomed our delegation.
Thank you.

S. Korean President Moon Jae-in says talk of Pyongyang summit premature

문 대통령 남북정상회담, 우물가에서 숭늉 찾는 격
President Moon Jae-in was in Pyeongchang yesterday to cheer on the Korean skaters in the short track finals.
He also met with journalists there,... plus the officials and volunteers that made these Olympic Games possible.
But when it comes to issues of geopolitics... and the Korean Peninsula,... President Moon says it's still too soon to think about holding an inter-Korean summit in the North.
Our Blue House correspondent Hwang Hojun reports. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch... is the stance of South Korean President Moon Jae-in... when it comes to a possible meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
The liberal leader made those comments on Saturday during his latest visit to the host city of the Winter Olympics, stopping by the main press center to offer some encouragement to journalists from around the world covering the PyeongChang Winter Games.
There's been an apparent thaw in relations between the two Koreas during the Olympics, but President Moon is still cautious about discussing the timing of a meeting between himself and the North Korean leader.
However, he did note that there's a growing recognition of the need for dialogue between the U.S. and North Korea and said he looks forward to the momentum for inter-Korean dialogue... leading to talks between Washington and Pyongyang,... and ultimately North Korea's denuclearization.
The prospect of a visit to Pyongyang by President Moon first surfaced when North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's younger sister, Kim Yo-jong made a historic visit to Seoul as her brother's special envoy last week.
She delivered a personal letter from Kim containing an invitation for the South Korean leader to visit Pyongyang.
After President Moon's meeting with the press, he had dinner with officials from the PyeongChang organizing committee and volunteers serving at the Winter Games to commend their hard work.
And later in the evening, President Moon and his wife, First Lady Kim Jung-sook, went to the Gangneung Ice Arena to cheer on the Korean short track speed skaters.
He saw the finals for the women's 15-hundred meters, in which Korea took the gold medal, and the men's 1,000 meters,... where Korea won bronze.

North Korean ceremonial guards received the South's delegation in an official welcome ceremony, with crowds lined up alongside the red carpet, cheering for both leaders.

The complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula will likely be high on the agenda.

President Moon Jae-in in Pyeongyang, holds first round of summit with Kim Jong-un

문 대통령 평양 도착, 김정은 위원장과 오늘 첫 회담

Our Blue House correspondent Hwang Hojun is standing by at the Seoul Media Press Center.
Hojun, give us the latest.

Jangho, less than an hour ago the Senior Presidential Press Secretary Yoon Young-chan briefed the media.
He noted there were a lot of firsts today.
This is the first time Kim Jong-un has ever held a bilateral summit in Pyeongyang since he came to power in 2011.
It was the first time for the North Korea's first couple have greeted a foreign dignitary at the airport.
And of course, it was the first time an event in Pyeongyang was ever beamed live to Seoul.
President Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un started their bilateral meeting at 3:30 pm and according to Yoon, the location is the Workers' Party of Korea Headquarters.
After the summit meeting, the two leaders will then attend an art performance by North Korea's Samjiyon Orchestra and singers - it is expected that South Korean pop singers Zico and Ailee, composer Kim Hyung-suk and magician Choi Hyun-woo will also participate in that performance.
A welcome dinner will then follow, which is expected to end around 9pm Korea standard time.


We did see some live feeds today after President Moon's departure from Seoul Air Base.
Going back to President Moon's arrival, Hojun, what was memorable that you can recap for us? And what has been the reaction at the press center, especially with the additional footage coming in?

Well, this being the second time the reporters have watched a live encounter between President Moon and Kim Jong-un, the reaction here at the Seoul Media Press Center was a bit more subdued than that of April, but all eyes were glued to the screen.
While we did anticipate Kim Jong-un to greet President Moon at the airport, many did show some excitement as Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju emerged and walked towards the South Korean Air Force One.
The two leaders flashed wide smiles and embraced one another as the crowds of North Korean citizens waved flowers, the North Korean flag, and the unification flag, which depicts the Korean Peninsula as one.
As I said earlier, it is quite unusual for a country's leader to greet a foreign counterpart at the airport. And this is North Korea we're talking about.
The last time a North Korean leader greeted his South Korean counterpart was in the year 2000 during the very first inter-Korean summit, between former President Kim Dae-jung and Kim Jong-un's late father, Kim Jong-il.

Kim Jong Un Greets Moon Jae-In For Third Korean Summit In Pyongyang | TIME

Kim Jong Un of North Korea, South Korean President Moon Jae-in plant tree

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in hold a ceremonial tree planting on the Military Demarcation Line during a historic summit at the Inter-Korean Summit.

S. Korean President Moon Jae-in visits a number of venues in Pyeongyang

문 대통령, 공동선언문 발표 후 평양 시내 곳곳 방문

After the joint declaration was made around noon,... the South Korean leader visited a number of places in Pyeongyang, including a restaurant serving the city's famous cold noodles.
Kan Hyeong-woo reports.
During the April inter-Korean summit, President Moon Jae-in tried some Pyeongyang Naengmyeon, or cold noodles, brought from the North's famous Okryu Restaurant. On Wednesday, the South Korean leader went straight to the source for a luncheon with Kim Jong-un.

North Korea's first lady Ri Sol-ju said Pyeongyang cold noodles have gotten a lot more popular since the Panmunjom summit,... telling reporters that foreign visitors have been asking for the signature dish.

After the luncheon, President Moon went back to where he's been staying,... the Baekhwawon State Guesthouse. Greeted by North Korean high ranking officials,... the South Korean leader planted a golden-rain tree brought from the South in the front garden with Vice Chair of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Choe Ryong-hae.

I hope this tree grows really well - that it blossoms along with relations between South and North Korea.

President Moon then visited Mansudae Art Studio. He wrote in the guestbook,... in the hope that art can be the bridge that connects the two Koreas. He said that when it comes inter-Korean exchanges, there should be interactions not only between the governments, but in culture, art and sports.

Ahead of the summit, Seoul's top office had made it known that President Moon would like to go to a restaurant in Pyeongyang popular with the locals. Making his wish come true, the dinner banquet was held at Pyeongyang Daedonggang Seafood Restaurant.

Opened in July, the three-story building can seat a total of 1,500 people on its second and third floors.
The first floor is a giant water tank where customers can pick the fish they want to eat. As he looked around the restaurant with Kim Jong-un, President Moon was greeted by many ordinary North Korean families there having dinner.
