North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said he wants to “write a new history of national reunification” with South Korea, state media says.

Kim told visiting South Korean envoys it was his “firm will to vigorously advance” closer ties, the North’s KCNA news agency said.

“Hearing the intention of President Moon Jae In for a summit from the special envoy of the south side, (Kim Jong Un) exchanged views and made a satisfactory agreement,” said Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) of the meeting that took place on Monday.

Earlier Monday, Kim hosted a dinner for the 10-member South Korean delegation. The delegation includes two ministerial-level envoys – intelligence chief Suh Hoon and National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong.

Kim and the delegation discussed improving North-South relations and easing military tensions on the Korean peninsula, KCNA reported.

It marked the first time officials from Seoul had met Kim since he took office in 2011.
