Trump and Kim signed document says North Korean leader "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula"
World | politics | 16:23, 12 June 2018 | 514

AKIPRESS.COM - US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un had a historic meeting today, June 12 in Singapore.

The meeting culminated with signing of a document.

The document Trump and Kim signed said the North Korean leader "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." In exchange, Trump agreed to "provide security guarantees" to North Korea, CNN reported.

But there was no mentioning the previous US aim of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization." And Kim's commitments did not appear to go beyond what he already pledged to do in April when he met South Korean President Moon Jae-in along their countries' border.

Tuesday's summit was the result of an extraordinary gamble for both Trump and Kim, the rogue kingdom's despotic leader. Trump hailed the talks as a historic, and personal, achievement.

"We learned a lot about each other and our countries," Trump said after sitting next to Kim and signing the document, which was bound in a leather binder. "I learned he's a very talented man."

He said he would "absolutely" extend an invitation to the White House to Kim, who also heralded a new era.

"Today, we had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind," Kim said through a translator. "The world will see a major change."
