Donald Trump has become the first sitting US president to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas, meeting with Kim and promising that big things are in store for the Korean Peninsula.
After briefly crossing into North Korean territory, the two leaders offered some thoughts on the historic moment.
“It’s a great honor to be here. A great honor,” Trump said, adding that “a lot of really positive things are happening” and that there is “tremendous positivity.”
The US president also hailed his “great friendship” with Kim, noting that “we met and we liked each other from day one, and that was very important.”
Kim for his part stated that by crossing the DMZ, Trump had demonstrated his desire to “open a new future” regarding North Korea.
