The historic Trump-Kim summit, as it happened



The historic Trump-Kim summit, as it happened

US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un held the first-ever meeting between leaders of their two countries on Tuesday morning in Singapore. Take a look at how the event unfolded in what was our liveblog below.

    The US and North Korean leaders shook hands and held one-on-one talks that Trump described as "very, very good".
    This was the first time a sitting US president met a North Korean leader.
    Trump and Kim signed an 'important' document in which they committed to working "toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".
    Joint document says US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a senior North Korean official will hold follow-up talks as soon as possible.
    Trump added that although it wasn't in the document Kim had told him "that North Korea is already destroying a major missile engine testing site ... we agreed to that after the agreement was signed."
    In a press conference afterwards, Trump confirmed that he had discussed with Kim the issue of human rights in North Korea; the future removal of American troops from South Korea; and the repatriation of US soldiers' remains from the Korean War.
