Donald Trump became the first U.S President to enter North Korea on Sunday, taking a few steps inside the nation’s territory in a meeting with the country’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.

The President had chosen to engage in an impromptu meeting with the North Korean leader while attending the nearby G20 Summit in Japan. President Trump has made unprecedented diplomacy with North Korea a highlight of his Presidency, reaching out with an olive branch to the historically hostile socialist country.

President Trump and Kim Jong-un spoke at the meeting, with the Supreme Leader hailing the President’s decision to reach out in a sign of peace. Speaking in English, the North Korean leader told the President that it was “good to see you… I never expected to meet you in this place.” The two were meeting at a so-called “peace village” located in the heavily surveilled demilitarized zone marking the border between North and South Korea.

President Trump went on to express his desire to attend a third diplomatic summit to resolve decades of hostility between North Korea and the United States. The President has offered generous proposals to the North Koreans in exchange to a commitment to denuclearization from the hereditary dictatorship, which is known for a level of isolation in the global community that is relatively unmatched.

After the meeting, the President went on to meet with U.S military service members deployed in the area.

“This is an historic moment, the fact that we’re meeting.” -President Donald Trump
