TRUMP-KIM MEETING: In a historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un signed a “comprehensive” document. There are no immediate details on the contents of the document, but Trump said he expected the denuclearisation process to start “very, very quickly”. After the meet, Kim Jong also said, “The world will see a major change.”
The first-ever meeting between the leaders of the two countries was today held in Singapore’s Sentosa Island. After the bilateral talks, Donald Trump said that the meeting with Kim Jong went “better than anyone could have expected” and that 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.
The two leaders, who in the morning, shared the historic handshake, also went out on a small stroll post lunch. Both men walked to Trump’s bullet-proof limousine, nicknamed “The Beast”, and looked in at the rear seat, with Trump apparently showing Kim something inside. They then resumed their walk.
The meeting marks a dramatic shift in relations between Trump and Kim Jong, who traded insults and threats of nuclear war till last year.
