North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met with China’s President Xi Jinping on an “unofficial visit” to Beijing this week, and the historic meeting was captured in a screenshot of footage released by China’s state broadcaster CCTV.

This incredible photo captures a handshake between the two leaders in front of North Korean and Chinese flags. The visit is Kim’s first overseas trip since becoming leader of North Korea in 2011.
