Responding to the summit on Twitter, Christine Ahn, founder of the peace group Women Cross DMZ, wrote it is “deeply touching to watch Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae shake hands, cross together on both sides of the [demilitarized zone], and make peace and history!”

Other Korea experts echoed Ahn’s celebration of the historic meeting—which makes Kim the first North Korean leader to visit the South—arguing it is a crucial and genuine step toward peace that must be built upon, especially with “warmongers” occupying the highest levels of the American foreign policy establishment under Trump.

Kim and Moon’s summit on Friday come ahead of a possible meeting between the North Korean leader and Trump, who now has two men who have both supported regime change in North Korea whispering in his ear—national security adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

A date for the Trump-Kim meeting has not yet been determined.

In a tweet on Friday, Trump—who has attempted to take credit for Kim’s moves toward diplomacy, even though experts argue the recent peace talks are due to the persistent efforts of the South Korean president—vaguely wrote, “Good things are happening, but only time will tell!”

Trump went on to add that “the United States, and all of its great people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea,” but made no mention of the Korean people.
