DENUCLEARIZATION SUMMIT: Meeting with Kim better than expected, Trump says

The pair of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have both emerged from their working lunch discussion with the US President saying the meeting with Kim is ‘better than anybody could have expected’.

While addressing reporters, Trump said he and Kim were on their way to sign something but when asked what the leaders would sign, the US President said “we’ll be announcing that in a couple of minutes”.

The meeting between both leaders is expected to have been dominated by discussions on denuclearisation and a possible peace declaration.
