President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document on Tuesday pledging Pyongyang would work toward “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” Chairman Kim said the world would see a “major change” in his regime, which agreed to destroy a “major” missile testing site.
“We are starting that process very quickly,” President Trump said when asked by a reporter if Kim agreed to denuclearize.
In return, the U.S. gave Pyongyang security guarantees. President Trump pledged to ensure Chairman Kim’s personal and regime security, hold off on additional sanctions and joint military exercises with South Korea.
The historic summit is the first-ever between the U.S. and North Korea after more than six decades of hostility.
