Seen on its centre is an autograph "A new history begins now - at the starting point of history, an era of peace. Kim Jong Un April 27, 2018" left by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in a visitor’s book at the House of Peace in the south side portion of Panmunjom in commemoration of the historic north-south summit before the start of the talks.
