The U.S. president and North Korean leader are poised to hold talks in late May or June, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The festivities surrounded the 15 April "The Day of the Sun", the anniversary of the birth of the founder of North Korea and the Kim dynasty, Kim Il Sung, in 1912. And the South Korean government hopes the first inter-Korean summit on the South's side won't be the last.

Kim, in a meeting with Song on Sunday, said he was personally meeting the visiting performers out of respect for Chinese President Xi Jinping and said he wanted to launch a "fresh phase of development" of relations between their countries. With the test of that long-range missile in November, the North said it had "realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force".

Kim invited Xi when he visited Beijing last month.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the truce village of Panmunjom on April 27th. He will be the first North Korean leader to step on South Korean soil since the 1950s.
