President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un finally met and shook hands on Sunday. This meeting was followed after a days of speculation and positive statements made by the leaders. Both Trump and Kim met at the Demilitarized zone between North and South Korea on Sunday.

This meeting was their first one after the summit in Hanoi in February, that didn’t really went well. Trump arrived early at the DMZ at 2 AM Eastern US time and was accompanied by South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Before the meeting with Kim, Trump met with some South Korean officials and was expected to review relics based on the Korean War era. He said, “We’re with you all the way”.

Earlier this meeting, before Kim arrived, Trump told the reporters that there have been tremendous improvements between the US and North Korea since their last summit with Kim in June. He also said that he would invite Kim to the US and also possibly to the White House.

“I would invite him right now”, Donald Trump said. In response, Kim said that he would invite Trump to Pyongyang, the capital, at the right time.
