While many people in the United States were sleeping Friday, the two nations of North and South Korea were making history.

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in started it all with a handshake at the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two countries. From there, Kim attended an inter-Korean summit in Panmunjom, South Korea, where the two leaders declared their willingness to bring about an official end to the Korean War after 65 years and a commitment to denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. 

The photos showed the two leaders smiling and exchanging friendly banter as they attended a military ceremony and had private conversations over lunch.
