Key junctures in DPRK and ROK relations | Updated: 2018-04-26 17:35

The Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea agreed to hold the third-ever inter-Korean summit on April 27 at the Peace House, a building in the ROK side of Panmunjom.

Moon and Kim will make their first historic encounter at 9:30 am local time (0030 GMT) Friday on the military demarcation line (MDL) inside Panmunjom.

Kim would be the first DPRK leader to step onto the ROK's soil since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in armistice.

The first and second inter-Korean summits were held in Pyongyang in 2000 and 2007, respectively.

As DPRK and ROK make positive moves to smoothen relations, let’s take a look at some key moments between the two countries in the past 50 years.
