Kim Jong-un Speaks Out When Signing Historic Document With Donald Trump
As we already know, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have made history today and they concluded their talks in Singapore by singing what the US described as a 'very comprehensive' document.
Neither have given much away - maybe because Kim Jong-un's voice is rarely heard in the West.
But the little he did say, through an interpreter, was interesting nonetheless.
He was overheard telling the US President: "Well, it was not easy to get here. The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward.
"But we overcame all of them, and we are here today.
"Of course there will be challenges ahead, but I am ready to listen. We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit, and I believe that this is good for the peace."
The MailOnline reported that the almost unbelievable nature of the encounter hasn't been lost on Kim, whose restrictive regime has kept the US on edge for decades.
The North Korean leader said: "Many people in the world will think of this as a ... form of fantasy ... from a science fiction movie."
Trump didn't go into further detail about any agreements made but did seem very enthusiastic about the future.
So hopefully they've agreed not to blow each other up now - phew.
However, the President did give away: "People are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy, and we're going to take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world."

Providing slightly more detail on the topic at the forefront of everyone's minds, Trump said that denuclearisation would be a process and that he believes it will happen 'very quickly' following the signing of the document.
He added: "This is going to lead to more and more and more and it's an honor to be with you a very great honour.
"We'll meet again. We'll meet many times."
After the summit ended, Trump assessed that Kim had a 'great personality' and is 'very smart - good combination.'
Adding that he was a 'worthy negotiator...a very worthy, very smart negotiator. We had a terrific day and we learned a lot about each other and our countries.'
Talks were apparently going so well on Tuesday afternoon that Trump showed Kim his limo, opening a door so he could inspect the car that travels everywhere with the president and flies in the belly of his plane when he's abroad.
We wonder whether they were comparing portable toilets because we know Kim Jong-un takes one everywhere.
Before the history-making meeting Trump taunted his critics on Twitter.
He said: "The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the U.S., say the haters & losers. We have our hostages, testing, research and all missle launches have stoped, and these pundits, who have called me wrong from the beginning, have nothing else they can say! We will be fine!"

Before the sun rose over Singapore he tweeted that 'meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly,' echoing a statement from his White House the evening before that talks were progressing so fast Trump would leave Singapore early.
"But in the end, that doesn't matter," he acknowledged. "We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen!"
