Donald Trump has become first-ever sitting US President to step foot into North Korea after he greeted North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the border separating the two Koreas. "I didn't expect it. Stepping across that line was a great honour," Trump said. Bill Clinton visited Kim's father Kim Jong-il in 2009, but he went as a former US President.
Moments after becoming the only sitting US president to set foot inside North Korea, Trump brought Kim back over the dividing line for a meeting where they agreed to start working-level talks on Pyongyang's nuclear weapons.
Trump also said he had invited the young leader to the White House "anytime he wants to do it". "It's a great day for the world and it's an honor for me to be here," Trump said. "A lot of great things are happening."
As they sat down for discussions, Kim said their "handshake of peace" in a location that was "the symbol of the division of north and south" showed that "we are willing to put the past behind us."
