    North Korea's state media gave wide coverage on Saturday to the summit between President Moon Jae-in and their leader Kim Jong-un the previous day.

    The official Rodong Sinmun daily carried 61 pictures of the summit on four of its six pages.

    The Saturday edition of North Korea's state-run Rodong Sinmun daily is full of pictures of the inter-Korean summit a day earlier.

    The front-page story was about Kim crossing the military demarcation line, with a photo of Moon and Kim shaking hands across the line.

    The newspaper also carried photos of the two leaders inspecting a South Korean honor guard, planting a tree, and having a tête-à-tête on a footbridge.

    It also printed the part of their joint declaration afterward that reads, "South and North Korea confirmed the common goal of realizing, through complete denuclearization, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula."
