SINGAPORE: A highly anticipated summit between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ended on Tuesday afternoon (Jun 12).

Both leaders emerged from a bilateral meeting and signed a joint statement. Among the key points in the document was North Korea's commitment to "work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula."

President Trump said during the signing ceremony that they have "developed a special bond".

Earlier in the day, in a historic moment, the two leaders walked across the aisles towards each other at the Capella Hotel in Singapore's Sentosa island and shook hands as the world watched.

In a news conference later that day, Mr Trump said the two countries were "ready to write a new chapter" and called the day's talks "honest, direct and productive".
