North Korea's state broadcaster gave the world a rare glimpse inside the green armoured train that took leader Kim Jong-un to China this week, in a long television report aired on Thursday.
The latest development was Kim's visit to China this week at the invitation of President Xi Jinping. Mr. Kim also promised to suspend all nuclear and missile tests while talks were underway, the envoys said.
Later Thursday, the North's official Korean Central News Agency for the first time confirmed Mr. Kim's plan to meet with Mr. Moon, without disclosing the time and venue of their meeting.
"The North Koreans wanted to drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States".
Accompanied by his wife, greeted by honour guards, and entertained at banquets, Kim Jong Un made his worldwide debut as North Korea's leader by being wined and dined in the capital of the world's most populous country.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said in a tweet that Chinese President Xi Jinping had told him a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had gone very well and that Kim looked forward to meeting with Trump.
"The issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can be resolved if South Korea and the United States respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realization of peace", Kim said.
The Peace House is located on the South Korea side of Panmunjom, making this meeting the first-ever visit to South Korea by a North Korean dictator.

Kim expects the U.S.to take "synchronous measures" in providing these concessions as the North agrees to take action-for-action steps, Manning said.
On the talks, the state broadcaster said Kim and Xi exchanged views on bilateral ties and the Korean peninsula, with Kim saying his party and the government were determined to take the relationship to a "new stage" to meet the needs of the times.
For China, the visit also projects to its public that Xi is firmly in charge of steering Beijing's relations with North Korea in a way that favors China's interests.

But the appointment of the hawkish John Bolton as national security adviser has heightened fears that the USA might resort to military action if Trump is disappointed by his meeting with Kim.
"For the North Koreans, it is in their best interests to enter any meetings with Moon or Trump having shored up and repaired to a certain extent their relations with Beijing", said Paul Haenle, director of the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy in Beijing. China is unhappy about having an emerging nuclear menace at its doorstep, but also doesn't want to see a collapse of a next door government it sees as a buffer state against US ally South Korea. Analysts think Kim may have been seeking promises from Beijing that it wouldn't hit the North too hard with sanctions if the talks with Washington and Seoul fall apart and the North starts testing nuclear weapons and missiles again.
Throughout it all, China has portrayed itself as the one steering the agenda. Kim's father had visited China several times during his rule, lastly in May 2011, months before his death that December.
