Trump, Kim sign “very important” document

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have signed a “comprehensive” document following talks on ways to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.

SINGAPORE (HOST BROADCASTER) – U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a “comprehensive” document following a historic summit aimed at the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

There were no immediate details on the contents of the document but Trump said he expected the denuclearization process to start “very, very quickly”.

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, just as former U.S. President Richard Nixon’s visit to Beijing in 1972 led to the transformation of China.

Before signing what Trump described as a “comprehensive letter”, Kim said the two leaders had held a historic meeting “and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.”

Trump said he had formed a “very special bond” with Kim and that relationship with North Korea would be very different.

“People are going to be very impressed and people are going to be very happy and we are going to take care of a very dangerous problem for the world,” Trump said.

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