Trump on Sunday met Kim in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea. Trump stepped onto North Korean soil, the first American President to do so, in a symbolic diplomatic spectacle after which both countries decided to resume stalled nuclear talks.
The two men shook hands warmly and expressed hopes for peace when they met for the third time in just over a year on the old Cold War frontier that for decades has symbolised the hostility between their countries, which are technically still at war.
