Trump, Kim sign a 'comprehensive' document after historic Singapore summit

Posted In: News Date:Jun 12th, 2018

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jon-un on Tuesday signed a "comprehensive" document following a historic US-North Korea summit in Singapore aimed at the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. There were no immediate details on the contents of the document but Trump said it was a "pretty comprehensive" document.

Trump said he and Kim have created a 'very special bond' while the North Korean leader vowed to 'leave the past behind'.

Trump said the process of denuclearisation would happen "very, very quickly", adding that the relationship with North Korea would be very different.

“This is going to lead to more and more and more,” Trump said.

Asked whether he would invite Kim to the White House, Trump said: "Absolutely, I will."

"We'll meet again and we'll meet many times," Trump said when asked if he and Kim will meet again in the future.

Although the breakthrough made at the summit marks just the start of a diplomatic process, it could bring lasting change to the security landscape of Northeast Asia.

Before signing the document, Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting “and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.”

During a post-lunch stroll through the gardens of Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa island where the summit was held, Trump said the summit had gone "better than anybody could have expected".
