Kim and Mr Moon will water the tree with water brought from the Taedong River in the North and the Han River in the South, Im said.
Thus today's meeting is not a result of efforts from these two leaders alone, but the entire worldwide community through the United Nations. August 9: Trump says North Korea had best not make more threats or "they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".
"But obviously we are waiting to see what comes out", he noted.
Otto Warmbier's parents were guests of the president and first lady at the State of the Union, where Trump described the "depraved character" of the North Korean regime and pledged to "honor Otto's memory with American resolve". "And that may come in the form of reuniting families, talking about economic cooperation and ending military hostilities", she said. And if "peace" is formally declared as part of a wider deal with the Americans, the North can make a new case for its long-cherished goal: to have the United States withdraw its large contingent of troops from the South. An armistice signed in 1953 halted the actual fighting, but the two countries are still technically at war. The summit in the demilitarized zone will begin an hour later.
"This is an issue that has not moved forward in decades".
To achieve progress, Moon desires to institutionalize a process that reopens the pathway toward peaceful denuclearization that had been closed by escalatory rhetoric, military posturing, and rising risk of conflict in the waning months of 2017.
"That's what makes this summit all the more hard", the chief of the South's presidential secretariat Im Jong-seok told reporters.
After they sign an agreement a joint statement will be issued, with a banquet and farewell ceremony to follow in the evening before Kim returns to the North.

And then, of course, there are the nukes.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in has left Seoul's presidential palace for a high-stakes summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that will kick off a new round of nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang.
Kim Yong Chol was previously chief of the Reconnaissance General Bureau, a North Korean military intelligence agency South Korea has blamed for the deadly 2010 sinking of the Cheonan, a South Korean navy corvette.
"Kim (Jong Un) and his regime have portrayed themselves as innocent, while they intentionally destroyed our son's life", Fred Warmbier, Otto's father, said in a statement to the Washington Post. Moreover, it appears the Americans will not seek any concessions on the nuclear weapons programme in advance of that meeting.
United States civil rights activist leader Martin Luther King Jnr once said: "We are not the makers of history, we are made by history".
"It's also important to test how serious Kim Jong-un may be about denuclearization". Jonathan Swan of Axios, one of the best-sourced reporters covering the White House, reported last weekend that a source who discussed North Korea with Trump said he thinks, "Just get me in the room with the guy, and I'll figure it out".
The North's border broadcasts have "notably" died down since the South went off the air but it was hard to know if it was intentional, a South Korean military official said.
