North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s wife Ri Sol-ju will arrive at Panmunjeom at about 6:15 p.m. to join President Moon Jae-in and first lady Kim Jung-sook for a state dinner, Cheong Wa Dae said Friday.
According to Moon’s Senior Public Relations Secretary Yoon Young-chan, Ri will arrive separately, and hold a brief conversation with Moon and Kim Jung-sook, along with her husband.

It had been speculated that Ri would make an appearance at Friday’s summit, but Seoul officials said a day earlier that the matter had not been decided.
