#SingaporeSummit Leaders sign 'comprehensive' document; Kim says world will see major change
Written by: International

SingaporeUS President Donald Trump said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gave his "unwavering commitment" to work towards denuclearisation during their summit.

He noted that sanctions would not be lifted until complete denuclearisation happens. US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a "comprehensive" document on Tuesday (June 12) outlining a joint commitment to the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, capping a once unthinkable meeting of foes with an important but tentative step towards peace.

In exchange for Pyongyang dismantling its nuclear programme, Washington pledged to stop joint military exercises with Seoul - long an irritant of the North Korean regime. But sanctions will remain until complete denuclearisation takes place - a process Mr Trump said would take a long time. The agreement reaffirmed the Panmunjom Declaration signed by Mr Kim, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission, and South Korean President Moon Jae In in April. And like that declaration, the document signed in Singapore did not lay out a clear timeline for North Korea's denuclearisation. (With Reuters)
