South Korea’s Presidential Blue House posted the photos on its official Twitter account, Sunday.

According to Blue House, Seoul Foreign Minister Kang-Hwa suggested the finger heart pose which is a popular hand gesture in South Korea done by crossing the tips of forefingers and thumbs.

Kim and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in along with other officials went to the Mount Paektu, an active volcano along the China–North Korea border, for a three-day summit, Thursday.

The volcano was considered by Koreans as their spiritual home.

On Wednesday, Kim and Moon agreed and announced that North Korea will close the Tongchang-ri missile-testing site with the presence of international experts.
