Kim and Moon will meet later in the afternoon after they have lunch separately. Kim returned to the North in a black limousine with bodyguards surrounding the vehicle as it made its way across the border.

The two are scheduled to plant a memorial tree at the border around 0430 GMT to kick off their second session of the summit.
