Hundreds of South Koreans will enter North Korea to reunite with their relatives and loved ones, as agreed by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in during their first summit in April.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in meets with North's leader Kim Jong-un inside the Demilitarised Zone dividing the two nations, a day after US President Donald Trump said his summit with Pyongyang could still go ahead.
Trump said the United States should consider reducing the number of troops in South Korea while Seoul has said the removal of troops is unrelated to a future peace treaty with the North.
Trump confirms that Singapore was under consideration as a location, but – following on from a morning tweet – says the DMZ should be given strong consideration.
US President Donald Trump welcomes the statement by North Korea and says he looks forward to a summit with Kim Jong-un.
Hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago, Trump also confirmed that North and South Korea are negotiating an end to hostilities before next week's meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
The leaders of North and South Korea will hold their first summit in more than a decade. The announcement comes after DPRK leader Kim Jong-un's reiterated his country's commitment to denuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula during a visit to Beijng.
There is speculation that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made a secret trip to China, after reports said a special North Korean train arrived in Beijing under unusually heavy security.
The high-profile trial of two women accused of killing estranged, half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong -un at Kuala Lumpur airport continues in Malaysia.
The North's invitation was hand delivered by Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo-jong, who attended the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the South, officials say. The divided Koreas are playing under the unification flag in the Games.
US President Donald Trump says he would "absolutely" be willing to talk with the North Korea's Kim Jong-un and hopes some progress results from upcoming talks between the two Koreas.
The North Korean leader says he intends to send a delegation to Winter Olympics in South Korea with an aim to improve ties with the neighbouring rival.
