Historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un





U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met face-to-face Tuesday morning for their highly anticipated summit.


They posed for a handshake, smiling cautiously, as they began the first ever summit between a North Korean leader and a sitting US president. After their meeting, Mr Trump said "a lot of progress has been made," and they sat down to sign a historic document.

Mr Trump told reporters the document was "pretty comprehensive" and the North Korean denuclearisation process would be starting "very quickly". But the broad agreement was light on specifics, largely reiterating previous public statements and past commitments.

The pair promised in the document to "build a lasting and stable peace regime" on the Korean Peninsula and to repatriate remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action during the Korean War.

It also reaffirmed the Panmunjom Declaration, signed after the North and South Korean leaders met on April 27, which stated the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) committed to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean officials would hold follow-up negotiations "at the earliest possible date", the statement also said. After the meeting, Mr Trump said he had formed a "special bond" with Mr Kim and the relationship with North Korea would be very different.
