SINGAPORE: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had made an "unwavering commitment" to the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula but sanctions against North Korea would remain in effect.
Trump, speaking after his historic summit meeting with Kim in Singapore, said both leaders were "prepared to start a new history and write a new chapter between our nations".
"He reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula," Trump told a news conference.
Trump said Kim had "an opportunity like no other", and that Kim had said a North Korean missile testing site "is going to be destroyed very soon".
The US will stop holding military exercises on the Korean peninsula, Trump said.
Washington and Seoul are security allies and hold joint exercises every year that infuriate Pyongyang.
"We will be stopping the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money," Trump told reporters, adding that "at some point" he wanted to withdraw US troops from the South.
Trump also said he will travel to Pyongyang 'at the appropriate time'
The US president said that he and Kim had discussed human rights briefly.
Trump said that North Korea sanctions remain for now, looks forward to lifting them
