Trump planned to speak to reporters after concluding the summit, the White House said.

Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Shortly after Trump's presser, a spokesperson from South Korea's Blue House (its executive branch of government) said that "the meaning and intention" of the U.S. president's remarks regarding the war games "require more clear understanding". Trump grasped Kim's right arm as they shook, and then, later, took hold of Kim's left arm as they turned to face the cameras and the world, both their expressions momentarily deadening before they turned to face each other again, and smiled. While Donald Trump said that the denuclearisation process of North Korea is expected to start "very quickly", Kim Jong added, "world will see a major change".

It was not immediately clear what specific progress, if any, had been made in preliminary discussions between USA and North Korean officials. The US forces in South Korea, meanwhile, told Stars and Stripes magazine that it had not received updated guidance on cessation of training exercises, and "will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance".

Hours earlier as he sat alongside Kim at the signing ceremony, Trump said the two leaders "have developed a special bond" and that after their several hours of talks Tuesday and the signing of the agreement he thinks the US relationship with North Korea "will be very different than in the past". I just kept going back. "I also they're also very expensive", he said.
