Key moments

Donald Trump and Kim spent nearly five hours for unprecedented and surreal talking on Tuesday with fulsome declarations of a new friendship but just vague pledges of nuclear disarmament.

“We both want to do something. We both are going to do something. And we have developed a very special bond. So, people are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy,” Trump said at the conclusion of the landmark summit during a formal ceremony.

“It has not been easy to come to this point. For us the past has been holding us back, and old practices and prejudices have been covering our eyes and ears, but we have been able to overcome everything to arrive here today,” Kim said in Korean.

Trump and Kim Jong-un have signed a joint statement at the end of their landmark summit. Trump is expected to give a press conference at 16:00 local time (08:00 GMT).

  • Denuclearization

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.

  • Began friendly relationships

“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.

  • US soldiers

Trump said he hopes to eventually withdraw US forces from South Korea, but said “that’s not part of the equation right now.”

“I want to get our soldiers out. I want to bring our soldiers back home,” Trump said. “But that’s not part of the equation right now. I hope it will be eventually.”

  • Sanctions

The US President said sanctions will remain in effect until North Korea has lived up to its commitments. He also said he halted plans for 300 sanctions designations last week because it would have been “disrespectful” to impose them.
