India welcomes the United States - DPRK Summit held in Singapore. In a statement Ministry of External Affairs said, "This is a positive development. India has always supported all efforts to bring about peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and diplomacy"

The United States will stop holding military exercises on the Korean peninsula, after today's meeting, Donald Trump said during the press conference

While addressing a press conference after the summit, Donald Trump said, "I think this meeting was good for United States as it was for North Korea. Only a person who hates Donald Trump would say that I have agreed to make a big commitment. Yes, it was a big commitment to meet Kim. But, it was good for us."

U.S. President Donald Trump also hinted at waiving off sanctions against North Korea. He said, "The sanctions will come off when we are sure that nuclear missiles are no longer a factor. I am looking forward to take them off" 

Donald Trump lauded Kim Jon Un for his positive approach in going ahead with this summit . He said, "Kim told me that we have never gone so far. He said that he never had the confidence in any of the previous Presidents in getting things done. He wanted to do this, even more than me."

US President Donald Trump in Singapore said, "We signed a very comprehensive document today and I think when Kim Jong Un lands in North Korea he will start the process soon." He also said that Jong Un had the chance to cease an opportunity for better future of North Korea.

US President Donald Trump after meeting Kim Jong Un said, "It is a great day and one of the greatest moments in the history of the world."

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the future could be positive in the Korean Peninsula and the world at large with the US and North Korea turning the tides of their bilateral relations. "The United States and North Korea have been in a state of antagonism for more than half a century. Today, that the two countries’ highest leaders can sit together and have equal talks, has important and positive meaning, and is creating a new history," he said.

In a major success for the United States, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly agreed to complete 'denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula'. Ahead of the meeting, reports said Pyongyang was firm on retaining some element of his nuclear arsenal in order to "maintain self-respect".

The historic summit between North Korea and the US has ended with the "signing of comprehensive documents". President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the press within an hour.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will meet for an unprecedented summit on Tuesday in Singapore.

The meeting is a dramatic shift in relations between the two countries, who last year traded insults and threats of war. Washington hopes the summit will kick-start a process that eventually leads to denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

North Korea has said it is willing to commit to denuclearisation, but it is unclear how this will be achieved or what might be requested in return.

In his latest tweet, hours before the summit was due to begin, Trump attacked his critics who have been arguing that the U.S. president should not be meeting the North Korean leader.

However, North Korea known for its taciturn behaviour of its leaders is not an easy country to negotiate with as previous U.S. Presidents have found out for themselves. Will Trump's experience be different?
