Kim Jong Un invites South Korean president for talks in the North
SEOUL — Kim Jong Un invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in to North Korea for talks following overtures made during the Olympics, Moon’s office announced Saturday.
The invitation was delivered by Kim Yo Jan, the sister of the North Korean leader. She arrived here Friday as part of a delegation to the Olympics.
The announcement was the first development stemming from Moon’s efforts to use the Olympics in an effort to improve relations with North Korea.
On Saturday Kim Yo Jan and other members of the North Korean delegation ate lunch with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the presidential palace.
It was the first time a member of the ruling family ever visited the presidential palace, called the Blue House.
