While the sequence of events was remarkable, experts on North Korea expressed caution about the unexpected burst of diplomacy. The two sides remain deeply divided over how, and when, Pyongyang should relinquish its nuclear arsenal, a disagreement that became clear when talks abruptly broke down at a February summit between Messrs. Trump and Kim in Vietnam.
The weekend’s moves underscored the unconventional detente between the U.S. and North Korea, longtime adversaries whose leaders have struck a personal connection. The prelude to Sunday’s meeting was an exchange of letters that Mr. Trump called “beautiful” and Mr. Kim described as “excellent.”
On Sunday, after Mr. Trump stepped over the low curb dividing South and North Korea he shook Mr. Kim’s hand. The two walked some 19 paces, where they stopped for photographers. Then they returned to the border—where the president posed a question to Mr. Kim.

“Would you like to come over?” he asked.
Mr. Kim agreed and entered a building called the Freedom House on the South Korean side. There he sat down with Mr. Trump and answered several questions, saying he had been surprised by the last-minute U.S. request to meet.
The two men, joined by members of their nuclear teams, then headed into a closed-door meeting that lasted nearly an hour. They emerged with the commitment to restart talks.
