  • Kim in January or February

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said he is safely in military custody.

Despite of these operations under warming ties, it is still unclear about Kim, whether he will make his ever first visit to South Korea this year or not.

The South Korean military, using surveillance equipment, detected the soldier crossing the Military Demarcation Line in Gangwon Province at 7:56 a.m.

-North Korea summit in June.

The president said that he and the North Korean leader have a "good relationship" and that talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula only been going on six to seven months, according to NBC.

South Korean authorities plan to question the defector over the details of his escape.

In November past year, a North Korean soldier drove to the heavily guarded border at speed and ran across under fire from his own comrades. Their two previous summits were held at the countries' shared border village of Panmunjom.

Three other soldiers reportedly crossed the land border a year ago in separate incidents.




Three sites are under consideration for a second U.S. -DPRK summit, President Donald Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday, en route back from a G20 meeting in Argentina.

The engineers boarded the train in Dorasan, just north of Seoul, on Friday morning for the short journey to the Demilitarised Zone which has divided the Korean peninsula since the Korean War in the 1950s.

Most flee across the porous frontier with neighbouring China and it is very rare for them to cross the closely guarded inter-Korean border, which is fortified with minefields and barbed wire.

To improve long-strained relation between the South and North Korea, they both have started their mission by removing landmines and also destroying military bunkers at their border.

They have also begun work to reconnect a train line and fix another rail link across the border.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday as he left Argentina on his presidential plane, Moon reportedly said Trump had asked him to tell Kim that he "likes him" and will help the North Korean leader "get what he wants".

Kim had been expected to visit Seoul in mid-December but the North asked for a delay citing internal affairs.

The US has given its support to the rail survey, but Mr Moon will have to have a number of hard conversations if he's to persuade President Donald Trump that easing sanctions at this stage would be worthwhile so the project can go ahead, our correspondent says.
