Kim Jong-un, the top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) meets ROK President Moon at Panmunjom.

ROK President Moon Jae-in and top DPRK leader Kim Jong-un are set to hold their first summit meeting on the ROK side of the border village of Panmunjom on Friday.

Kim will become the first DPRK leader to cross the border onto the ROK soil since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The official Rodong Sinmun daily has said in an article that the summit is a historic one and a major event in the national history of Korea and it demonstrates the determination of Kim to realize reunification with the south through the strength of national unity.

On Thursday, the official daily again slammed ROK conservatives for trying to derail the process of national reconciliation launched by DPRK since the beginning of the year.

A 41-year-old IT engineer who identified himself as Choy said that the summit is definitely a good thing.

"It is starting to get better in inter-Korean relations, but there will be a long way to go," he told Xinhua.

Kim Jong-un launched the process of reconciliation with ROK in his New Year's speech, calling for improving relations and taking measures to end the military confrontation at the peninsula.

Afterwards, DPRK and ROK cooperated in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in February and exchanged visit of level delegations in March, warming up their relations and easing tension on the peninsula.
