Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un met in a historic, unprecedented summit in Singapore, which concluded today with an unforeseen document signing in which both countries committed to  “a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean peninsula," Variety reports.

The talk was entirely without precedent—Trump is the first sitting US president to meet with a North Korean head of state.

While no specific actions were outlined in the official document, Trump told reporters: "We both want to do something. We both are going to do something. And we have developed a very special bond," per CNN'report. "People are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy."

The document signed did state the Jong-Un has "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," and in return Trump has promised to "provide security guarantees" to North Korea. You can read the full text here.

Trump and Jong-Un shaking hands in front of a row of American and North Korean flags was a major propaganda moment for the brutal dictator, who was called "talented" by Trump and offered an invite to the White House.

Trump told reporters after the summit (per Variety): "“It’s very comprehensive. It’s going to happen,” adding later on: "I may be wrong. I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey, I was wrong.’ I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.”
