SEOUL -- In a rare move, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has formally invited South Korean President Moon Jae In to Pyongyang for a summit at the "earliest date" possible.


The invitation was personally delivered on Saturday (Feb 10) by Mr Kim's younger sister Yo Jong, who visited Seoul as a special envoy of the North Korean leader. She arrived Friday with a high-level North Korean delegation to attend the opening of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.


Ms Kim is the first of the ruling Kim family to set foot in the South, after the two countries were separated following the 1950-53 Korean War.
