Kim Jong Un invites South Korean President to Pyongyang

South Korean President Moon Jae-in was invited to visit the North Korean capital of Pyongyang on Saturday by Kim Jong Un. The handwritten invitation was presented by Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong at Seoul's Presidential Palace during the largest meeting between North and South Korean officials in over a decade.

According to The Washington Post's Tokyo bureau chief, Ms Kim hoped the invitation would bring "unification and prosperity in the near future" and "Pyongyang and Seoul will become closer in the heart of Koreans." If President Moon accepts the invitation it would be the first meeting of Korean leaders since 2007.

Such an amicable meeting between the nations would normally be unusual, but the Olympic Games in Seoul have fostered diplomatic communication between the two nations.

A South Korean spokesman said "President Moon responded by saying that the two sides should work on establishing the right conditions to realize the meeting." President Moon also asked North Korea to re-open lines of communication with the U.S.

The U.S., however, has not been swayed by North Korea's recent diplomacy. Vice President Mike Pence recently stated "We will not allow North Korean propaganda to hijack the message and imagery of the Olympic Games."
