North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un called to end the history of confrontation on the Korean Peninsula, according to spokesman of South Korea's President Moon Jae-In.
Kim suggested holding regular summits after shaking hands with Moon during a meeting with him, a presidential spokesman told reporters.
Speaking at a briefing after the first round of talks ended in the border village of Panmunjom, Im Jong-seok quoted Kim as saying, "Let us meet more often. Let us build a better world."
According to Seoul, Kim told Moon that Pyongyang "won't interrupt your early morning sleep anymore," referring to missile tests.
During the meeting, Moon offered, among other things, to link the railroads of the two countries, the spokesman said.
The two leaders also exchanged invitations to each other's capital, in which Moon Jae-In expressed his interest in visiting North Korea's holy mountain Paektu.
The summit is the third such encounter since the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War. It is being held on the southern side of the demilitarized zone but President Moon briefly stepped over onto the northern soil when the two met on Friday morning.
