Historic talks between the leaders of North and South Korea were helped by cold noodles. North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in discussed a range of issues, including a denuclearized Korean Peninsular. After Kim Jong-un made history by becoming the first North Korean leader to step foot in the South, he joked about his gift of cold noodles for Mr Moon. Immediately after, queues started outside cold noodle shops in Seoul. On social media, "cold noodles" was trending higher than "North Korea-South Korea summit".

World leaders are hopeful that the summit will lead to peace. The two Koreas are technically still at war. They never signed a peace treaty after the end of the Korean War in 1953. China praised the leaders for their "political courage". It welcomed their promises to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and seek a peace treaty. China called the handshake on the border between the leaders a "historic moment". Many families were separated after the Korean War. They hope that better relations between their two countries will let them reunite with family members after decades of separation.
