The two sides ended the Korean War this week after the two sides had been in a state of De facto military stalemate.

Both Kim and Moon had pledged to work for “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula and agreed on a common goal of a “nuclear-free” peninsula.

Following the summit, Trump said only time would tell, but that he did not think Kim was “playing.”

“It’s never gone this far. This enthusiasm for them wanting to make a deal … We are going to hopefully make a deal.”

Still, Trump told reporters, he would maintain pressure on North Korea and “not repeat the mistakes of past administrations.”

Trump tweeted earlier today that he has spoken to South Korean leader Moon and added that during the call they “emphasized that a peaceful and prosperous future for North Korea is contingent upon its complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation.”

The White House also said Trump had informed Abe that he would “urge North Korea to promptly resolve its abductions of Japanese citizens.”

President Trump and Kim Jong Un are due to meet later this year for a summit.
