However, CBS reports that the United States and North Korea did not reach any specific agreement on how North Korea will achieve denuclearization. In a rare news conference after the summit, Trump stated that the U.S. will be “verifying,” that North Korea follows through. Check out video of the news conference below.

“Mr. Trump said the U.S. will be continuing sanctions until denuclearization occurs — but suggested sanctions might be lifted earlier than many experts thought possible,” CBS reports.

Trump claimed that the summit went “better than anybody would have expected,” that Kim had a great personality, and that he looked forward to inviting Kim to the White House.

“The old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward, but we overcame all of it and we are here today,” Kim said after the summit.
