US President Donald Trump put his extraordinary gamble with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to the test on Tuesday, sitting for unprecedented and surreal talks with the rogue kingdom’s despotic leader in what he hopes will amount to a historic breakthrough.
Photographs of a document signed by Trump and Kim indicate the leaders agreed to “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”
The document also indicates the leaders will endeavor to establish “new US-DPRK relations.”
“I think our whole relationship with North Korea and the Korean peninsula is going to be a very different situation than it has in the past,” Trump said at the conclusion of the landmark summit, which culminated in formal signing ceremony.
“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.”
