Trump and Kim sign a 'very comprehensive' document at the conclusion of talks with the US president promising

10:27 • 12.06.18



US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un concluded a day of talks in Singapore by signing what the US president described as a 'very comprehensive' document.  


Trump did not go into further detail about the contents of the agreement that was likely a framework for further talks, the Daily Mail reports. 


“People are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy, and we’re going to take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world, Trump said at the signing. “And I want to thank chairman Kim. Spent a lot of time together today, very intensive time.”  


The US president said he would 'absolutely' be willing to host Kim at the White House after today's talks, telling a room full of journalists representing American and North Korean outlets, “This is going to lead to more and more and more and it’s an honor to be with you a very great honor.”


“We'll meet again. We'll meet many times,” he said.


Trump earlier said as the summit commenced that 'it's an honor' to be with Kim today to open a direct line of communication that he expects to blossom into 'a terrific relationship' with the longtime US antagonist.


He told journalists later, after a working lunch that he had a 'really fantastic meeting' with Kim and that he believes was 'really, very positive.'


'”I think, better than anybody could have expected, top of the line, really good. We're going right now for a signing,” he said.


Talks were apparently going so well on Tuesday afternoon that Trump showed Kim his limo, opening a door so he could inspect the car that travels everywhere with the U.S. president and flies in the belly of his plane when he's abroad.

Trump and Kim began the summit with a hearty handshake, exchanging pleasantries for the cameras and meeting one-on-one for 38 minutes with only translators present while the world watched with anticipation as the first-ever meeting between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader unfolded. 


The US president said they would be “signing” an unspecified document at the conclusion of the discussions.


A working lunch on Tuesday  featured prawn cocktail with avocado salad, green mango kerabu with honey lime dressing and fresh octopus and 'Oiseon' Korean stuffed cucumber as starters.


For the main course, the leaders had the choice of beef short rib confit, sweet and sour crispy pork and Yangzhou fried rice with chili sauce or soy braised cod fish.


Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream with cherry coulis, Tropezienne and a dark chocolate tartlet ganache were listed on a White House handout as the dessert options.


“Very nice. Get a good picture everybody so we look nice and handsome and thin. Perfect,” Trump jested to journalists as they were briefly allowed to observe the meal. 

 

The almost unbelievable nature of the encounter hasn't been lost on Kim, whose repressive regime has kept the US on edge for decades through bellicose statements, nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches.


“Many people in the world will think of this as a ... form of fantasy … from a science fiction movie,” he told the president through a translator in a remark overheard during a morning session by the press.  


Trump told reporters as he sat down for his initial meeting with Kim that he believed they were 'going to have a great discussion' that he believed would be a 'tremendous success.'


“It will be tremendously successful,” he reiterated. “And it's an honor, and we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”


Kim – whose voice is rarely if ever heard in the West – told the U.S. president through an interpreter, 'Well, it was not easy to get here. The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward. But we overcame all of them, and we are here today.'


“That's true,” Trump said in agreement, shaking his counterpart's hand and making what appeared to be joke that was audible to only the two men and their translators as reporters were led out of the room.


Trump and Kim then held private talks with only their interpreters before walking together along a route that provided them with another opportunity to speak to press.


“Very, very good. Excellent relationship,” Trump told a tightly-restricted group of assembled journalists.
