South Korea's President Moon Jae In and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made history at the summit on April 27. 

The leaders of North and South Korea met for the first time in over a decade. The historic summit took place at the Korean Demilitarized Zone. The two leaders crossed the DMZ line, entering each other's territory for the first time. Kim and Moon also exchanged warm handshakes. 
Next, they attended a meeting with officials and planted a tree from the year 1953 for a symbolic ceremony. Then, Kim and Moon signed the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula, which commits the two countries to a nuclear-free peninsula and talks to put an end to the Korean War that has divided Korea for over 6 decades.
In a speech, Kim also stated the Koreas "will be reunited as one country." 
The summit came to an end with a formal dinner. Both leaders promised to keep in touch over the phone and meet again in Pyongyang in the fall.
