SEOUL -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed holding regular bilateral summits to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their first meeting on Friday, in the belief that communication between the two leaders will be crucial to establishing peace on the peninsula.

Kim echoed this idea. "Now let's meet more often," he told Moon, to which the South Korean leader replied: "During the past seven decades, we weren't able to communicate, but we can talk the whole day today."
