North, South Korean Leaders Meet for Second-Ever Summit
(L) N. Korea's Kim Jong Il - S. Korea's Roh Moo-hyun (R)
As the Leaders walked up to shake hands; Kim Jong Il was said to have uttered the words, "I'm glad to meet you" ... Met by the cheers of hundreds of thousands of North Koreans; spectators to a second time summit; and a first time to meet the South’s President Roh Moo-hyun...

Summit Is Watershed for Peace: Lim
"The two Koreas should play a major role to create a peace regime on the peninsula," said Lim. "Therefore, the two Koreas should lead the signing of a peace treaty. The United States and China may guarantee the treaty, while the United Nations ratifies it."

North Korean Talks Close to Consensus
"North Korea has shut down its plutonium-producing reactor at Yongbyon; in return for 950,000 metric tons of fuel oil or its equivalent in economic aid."

Evidently, this was the first summit (June 07, 2000)

Oh, and it's almost not worth mentioning here (and I don't expect much) but I did send a request to do an Interview. (Didn't mention a camera-crew.) Who knows, maybe he'll agree to hold interview here (haha)
Anyway, huge long-shot, but then... who knows. :D

BBC's North Korea Slide-Show: here
Fron a caption: "The mass games spectaculars are a source of great national pride. North Koreans believe they are the best in the world; saying that it shows their unity of purpose, the suppression of the individual for the benefit of the society as a whole."
