President Trump on Tuesday touted his unprecedented meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a breakthrough that would ease decades of tensions that have made the Korean Peninsula one of the most dangerous places on Earth.
But the four-point joint statement the two men signed fell short of previous international accords reached with Pyongyang and left big questions unanswered.
"We're prepared to start a new history, and we're ready to write a new chapter," a relaxed and triumphant Trump said at a news conference after the one-day summit in Singapore. He called the outcome a "first, bold step for a brighter future."
