GOYANG /South Korea/, April 27. /TASS/. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s invitation to South Korean President Moon Jae-in to step on the North Korean side of the demarcation line was spontaneous, South Korean Presidential Spokesperson Yoon Young-chan said at a briefing on Friday.

"When Kim Jong-un entered the South Korean territory, President Moon rhetorically asked when he would be able to visit North Korea. Kim Jong-un promptly replied: "Perhaps, right now." He took the president by the hand and invited him to the other side of the military demarcation line," the spokesperson said.

The South Korean president did not hesitate to do that so the two leaders stood on the North Korean side in front of the cameras for a while.

The North Korean leader said he was impressed to hold a meeting "in such a historic place."

The first session of the inter-Korean summit has concluded in the border village of Panmunjom. Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un spent an hour and a half at the negotiating table.
