BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 A.M.) – US President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at a historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday.
Trump called the meeting “a tremendous success” and that “we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”
Kim responded by saying that the pair had “overcame everything” to make the summit a reality.
The much-anticipated talks are the first ever meeting between leaders from North Korea and the United States.
Washington hopes the summit will lead to the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
Pyongyang is willing to begin a process of denuclearisation, but it is not known how this will be achieved or what it will ask for in return.
