South Korean President Moon Jae-in told a Cabinet meeting Monday his meeting with President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the Demilitarized Zone marked "an end of hostile relations," AP reports.

Why it matters: Trump on Sunday became the first sitting U.S. president to enter North Korea before his summit with the 2 Korean leaders. Leading Democrats dismissed the event as little more than a "photo op." AP notes that many experts also believe it lacked substance, but Moon said the talks were the "start of an era of peace."
