wounded in the attacks and no one has so far claimed responsibility. well the leaders of north korea and south korea are due to hold a summit this friday it will be the first direct meeting between the country's leaders for more than a decade they're expected to discuss bringing a formal end to hostilities between the two countries and we think will take place on the southern side of the truce village of panmunjom with correspondents on both sides of the demilitarized zone and kathy novak has been at the venue where the leaders will meet a first this from james based on his road trip from pyongyang to the border it takes over two hours to drive from the north korean capital pyongyang through the countryside to the d.m.z. the demilitarized zone. the road is bumpy but very quiet it's also in places extremely wide one pyongyang resident speculated to me this was so aircraft could land with reinforcements in the event of conflict once we reached the d.m.z.
1:07 am
security was tight we were not permitted to film in certain areas our guide was a north korean army captain he showed us the layout of this front line zone this is not an international border the korean war officially never ended it was simply paused with an armistice or truce. is it possible for you to show us where the meeting on the twenty seventh will be taking place between field-marshal kim and the president of south korea. to cuba it's the peace house on the southern side so this is the first time any of your leaders garm across to the southern side to tell you that at the top yes. we continued on the route that the north korean leader will take for his historic meeting on friday past the building where the one nine hundred fifty three armistice was negotiated and the hall where it was
