Kim Jong-un to meet Moon Jae-in at Korean border for summit

South Korea said President Moon Jae-in would personally meet Mr Kim at the border at 09:30 (00:30 GMT) on Friday.

The historic summit will focus on the North's recent indications it could be willing to give up its nuclear weapons.

Talks are also proposed between Mr Kim and US President Trump by early June.

Mr Kim is set to cross the military demarcation line - a clearly defined marker of the official land border between the territories. He will, however, remain within the Demilitarised Zone.

Moon Jae-in: South Korea's new leader to be sworn in

Mr Moon is taking on a country reeling from a corruption scandal which saw his predecessor removed from office.

The 64-year-old rights lawyer and economic liberal must also look to shore up a fragile economy and manage tense relations with North Korea.

He has spoken of increasing contact with the North, which would mark a major shift in South Korean policy.

Mr Moon, the Democratic Party candidate, took 41.1% of the vote, with conservative Hong Joon-pyo taking 25.5%.

It put Mr Moon on 41.4%, with his nearest challenger, conservative Hong Joon-Pyo, on 23.3%.

Mr Moon favours greater dialogue with North Korea, in a change to current South Korean policy.

The early election was called after a corruption scandal led to the impeachment of the former president.

Park Geun-hye is accused of allowing a close friend to extort money from companies. She denies all wrongdoing.

If Mr Moon's victory is confirmed, he is likely to be sworn in on Wednesday.
