​North Korean Denuclearisation Process To Start 'Very Quickly' As Donald Trump And Kim Jong Un Sign Document

US President Donald Trump has said the North Korean denuclearisation process would be starting "very quickly" after he and Kim Jong Un signed an unspecified document.

The news comes after the pair made history with a meeting in Singapore to try and bring an end to their differences.

Kim said that the "world will see a major change" and he and Trump "decided to leave the past behind" as they put pen to paper.

It's not entirely clear what was included on the document that they signed but both men appeared happy and Trump made his announcement about denuclearisation.

Trump also said that he would be willing to invite Kim to visit the White House following this first meeting.

Before they signed the document, Trump and Kim had been involved in one-on-one talks, which came after months of planning.

Former businessman Trump said as he met Kim for the first time: "I feel really great. We're going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful."

Trump has his critics around the world but the fact he has become the first US President to secure a meeting with a North Korean leader will go down in history.

North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945.

The two Korean states then went to war in the 1950s and never actually signed a peace treaty, making that the longest ceasefire in history. The US had sided with South Korea in the conflict.

"It was not easy to get here," Kim said of the meeting. "There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here." Trump said: "That's true."

In what has been a 2018 of bad news stories, let's hope that this is a positive for all the world.
