Well, it finally happened.


U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a "comprehensive" document following a historic summit aimed at the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

There were mo immediate details on the contents of the document.

Although the breakthrough made at the summit marks just the start of a diplomatic process, it could bring lasting change to the security landscape of Northeast Asia.

Before signing what Trump described as a "comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting “and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.”

Trump said the process of denuclearisation would happen"very, very quickly", adding that he had formed a "special bond" with Kim and the relationship with North Korea would be very different.

“This is going to lead to more and more and more,” Trump said.

Asked whether he would invite Kim to the White House, Trump said: "Absolutely, I will."



During a post-lunch stroll through the gardens of the Singapore hotel where the summit was held, Trump said the summit had gone "better than anybody could have expected".

Kim stood silently alongside, but the North Korean leader had earlier described their meeting as a "a good prelude to peace".

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.

Both men had appeared cautious and serious when they first arrived for the summit at the Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa, a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, manmade beaches and a Universal Studios theme park.

But, with cameras of the world's press trained on them, they displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie as they met on the verandah of the Capella, a refurbished 19th century British regimental officers' mess.

After a handshake, they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters. Trump had said on Saturday he would know within a minute of meeting Kim whether he would reach a deal.

Inside, they sat alongside each other against a backdrop of North Korean and U.S. flags, with Kim beaming broadly as the U.S. president gave him a thumbs up.

The combatants of the 1950-53 Korean War are technically still at war, as the conflict, in which millions of people died, was concluded only with a truce.

After initial exchanges lasting around 40 minutes, Trump and Kim emerged, walking side-by-side through the colonnaded hotel before entering a meeting room, where they were joined by their most senior officials.

Kim was heard telling Trump through an interpreter: "I think the entire world is watching this moment. Many people in the world will think of this as a scene from a fantasy...science fiction movie."

Asked by a reporter how the meeting was going, Trump said:"Very good. Very, very good. Good relationship."

Kim also sounded positive about the prospects of peace.

"We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace," he said. "I believe this is a good prelude for peace."

The dollar jumped to a 3-week top on Tuesday and Asian shares rose on the news.

Trump was joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, for the expanded talks, while Kim's team included former military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol, foreign minister Ri Yong Ho and Ri Su Yong, vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party.

As the two leaders met, Singapore navy vessels, and air force Apache helicopters patrolled, while fighter jets and an Gulfstream 550 early warning aircraft circled.

After the meetings, the two teams and other senior officials met for a working lunch, where beef short ribs, sweet and sour pork and "Daegu Jormin", or Korean braised cod, were served for the main course, according to the menu. That was to be followed by dark chocolate tarts, pastries and vanilla ice cream for dessert. The North Korean leader's sister and close confidante Kim Yo Jong was among the lunch party.

As the cameras captured the moment, Trump quipped: "Very nice. Getting a good picture everyone, so we all look nice and handsome and thin...perfect".

The White House said later that discussions with North Korea had moved "more quickly than expected" and Trump would leave Singapore on Tuesday night after the summit, rather than Wednesday, as scheduled earlier.

Kim is due to leave on Tuesday afternoon, a source involved in the planning of his visit has said.

How much bribe money will we send to Kim Jong for his agreement? I'm sure Trump can trump Obama's 1 Pallet of $100 dollar bills, by sending 2 pallets!

I think American businesses will get in on the exclusive 3 way rights (China, Russia and America) to his countries rare minerals. Of course it has to do with making peace, but Kim will have to join the World Banking system. Also the Japanese Yen just went up. For me, that means an increase from Uncle Sam.

Well, they print the damn things like crazy anyway, and back it by nothing, so would it not be an insanely cheap way to get rid of a would-be nuclear threat to America?

That's how I feel also, and along with Kims rare metals. Good deal really.

It's gonna be interesting to see what's in these signed documents. We should know in about 35 mins ( 4am press conference.)

A couple news outlets zoomed in on one of the signed agreements that appears to be a garuntee for Kim's safety.

It's awesome watching the usual MSM spinsters struggling to put their narrative together!

I'm glad my oldest daughter was up to watch history with me. I think there was certainly planning that tied to G7 posturing to make this happen. Look for G9 (Re-Russia and +NK edition)

I think that this will go very smoothly as Trump is not the type to back down, whatever you think of him. While Kim may not be either, he is certainly not stupid. China won't back stupidity, because it would not serve anyone in the region well.

My thoughts on the matter in full: www.abovetopsecret.com...

TLDR; If the deal goes well, they'll likely want to keep dealing and get in on the Global Economic Summit.

Fox is reporting that the signed document agrees to "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula. If so, that's big. Very big. I'm sure there are a myriad of details still to be worked out, but just an agreement to the concept is massive.

I didn't get to see all the reports earlier, but I have been watching body language since I got to watch. Both are nervous. Trump is concentrating pretty hard and turning on the charm like a floodlight. Kim appears to be a bit awed by his surroundings... I wonder how many times he actually gets away from North Korea?

I'll be watching the 3:00 AM statement like a hawk eyeing a chocolate-covered mouse...

It is a condensed version of the April 27 agreement between Moon and Kim.
An agreement to strive.

All that Trump has to say is :
"Kim, sign here or..."

The global sanctions hit NK hard. I don't think any further threats are needed.

You guys don't remember the last three times North Korea said they'd denuke hey? Collective amnesia? This looks like the 2005 agreement only with less forceful language.

There are no detail, no dates, no time limits, no metrics, just vague assurances to do something someday.

In other words, we got nothing and Un got the optics of being treated as an equal by the POTUS. The flags side by side. Un has been legitimized on the world stage and has a decade's worth of fresh propaganda to dump on state TV.

Trump got a handshake and a photo op. Plus propaganda to dump on state TV.

And for those Red Caps who I know are triggered by this already, for god sake grow up. Nobody wants war with North Korea. But we know that North Korea will not get rid of their nukes. These kind of agreements have been done in past but North Korea always broke it. People are very pessimistic because they have done this for decades.

You mean, Kim got to know exactly what is in store for him if he cooperates? Do you not understand what will happen if he does not? Even Trump's base will fry him if he doesn't stand firm. Ignorance is bliss here isn't it with some?

As for Phage, I always want to respect you but always fall short when you post about politics.

There is no limp-wristed leader in the White House, Commander in Chief, TODAY. That is all the difference.
