A South Korean delegation arrived in Pyongyang, North Korea, on Monday, and members were said to have had dinner and met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

This was the first time Kim Jong Un has ever met South Korean officials.

“Chairman Kim Jong Un is currently hosting a dinner for the special envoys,” Cheong Wa Dae, or Blue House – the executive office of the South Korean president – spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told a press briefing, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported.

The visit is historic and comes at a time when discourse with North Korea is critical, as the U.S. seeks to have North Korea quell its nuclear ambitions.

The South Korean delegation included 10 people and was headed by the South Korean presidential national security director, Chung Eui-yong, whom some have reported might meet with Kim Jong Un himself. The visit is expected to last two days.

President Donald Trump has said he would talk with Kim Jong Un, and the United States has expressed willingness and openness to have discussions, as well.
