Kim Jong-Un Commits To 'Complete De-Nuclearisation' In Historic Agreement

It's been a tense couple of days in the world of politics, as Donald Trump has travelled to Singapore to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

It's the first time leaders from the two countries have met, and some big promises have been thrown around.

The agreement that they signed promises that Kim Jong-un will show 'unwavering commitment' to furthering the 'complete de-nuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula', reports MailOnline.

Trump has, in return, promised 'security guarantees' for North Korea.

The US President said there's now a special bond between the two countries, and it's hoped that this bond will ease all the tension surrounding nuclear weapons that's been floating around for the past year.

Kim has said that the world will see a 'major change' and that it's time to 'leave the past behind'.

The North Korean dictator is one of the youngest, and most powerful, national leaders in the world.

The meeting took place at the swanky Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

A statement from the Singapore Summit was not immediately released, but photographers caught images of it when Trump posed for photos. It covers in detail the new relations between the two powerful countries.

The main take-away is that peace is top of both agendas - so that's nice.

It reads: "The United States and the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) commit to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

"The United States and DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula."

There's been tension since 2011, when Kim Jong-il passed away and left his youngest son in charge. Despite global condemnation, the country continued to develop an arsenal of nuclear weapons, including a missile capable of reaching the US.

The fact that Kim Jong-un is promising to cease his nuclear developments would certainly put a lot of minds at ease for the time being.

Trump has said that he will meet 'many times' with the North Korean leader, and would be willing to host him at the White House.

He also showed off his shiny toy to his new pal - an armoured limo known as 'The Beast'.

Well, this is quite the turn-around from last year, when they were throwing petty insults at each other on Twitter.
