US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un held a first, historic summit in Singapore on today.

Trump and Kim conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new US-North Korea relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the
Korean Peninsula.

Trump committed to provide security guarantees to North Korea, and Kim reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

Convinced that the establishment of new US-North Korea relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognising that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, Trump and Kim Jong Un state the following:

  1. The US and North Korea commit to establish new US-North Korea relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
     
  2. The US and North Korea will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
     
  3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, North Korea commits to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
     
  4. The US and North Korea commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Having acknowledged that the US-North Korea summit - the first in history - was an epochal event of great significance and overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening of a new future, Trump and Kim commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously.

The US and North Korea commit to hold follow-on negotiations led by the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level North Korea official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the US-North Korea summit.

Trump and Kim have committed to cooperate for the development of new US-North Korea relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.
