SEOUL, South Korea — President Donald Trump says he's looking forward to meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un at the Korean Demilitarized Zone later Sunday.

Trump is telling reporters at a joint news conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in that he and Kim will "just shake hands quickly and say hello" at the historic meeting at the Korean border village of Panmunjom.

And he's praising the chemistry between him and Kim, saying "there's a lot of good feeling. The meeting will be the first at the DMZ between U.S. and North Korean leaders since the Korean War ended in an armistice in 1953.

Moon is also hailing Trump as "the peacemaker of the Korean peninsula," and says he hopes Trump will go down in history as the president who managed to achieve peace on the Korean peninsula.
