Singapore: In a historic summit, US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a comprehensive joint document as they held the first-ever-meeting Tuesday morning in Singapore. In the joint text, Kim Jong Un has committed to 'complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula'.
A meeting, which was closely watched across the world, seems to have narrowed down the differences between the two countries as the two firebrand leaders heaped praise on one another. The US president called Kim "a very talented man" who loves his country very much adding that they have "developed a very special bond".
The North Korean leader also hailed the "historic meeting" and vowed to leave the past behind.
The meeting at a luxury hotel in Singapore's Sentosa island came after months of diplomatic twists and turns.
The United States hoped the summit will pave way for complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula while North Korea saw the opportunity to get itself recognised as a player on the world stage.
