Trump hails 'historic' inter-Korean summit

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to praise the meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea, Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in. Trump noted he was satisfied with the developments on the Korean Peninsula, but remained cautious about the situation, noting "only time will tell" what the final outcome will be.

"After a furious year of missile launches and Nuclear testing, a historic meeting between North and South Korea is now taking place. Good things are happening, but only time will tell!" Trump tweeted. "KOREAN WAR TO END! The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!" he added.

Earlier, Kim and Moon met at the first inter-Korean summit since 2007 and agreed to sign a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War later in the year. The two leaders also agreed to work on completing the denuclearization of the peninsula. Last week, Pyongyang announced it has decided to stop conducting nuclear and missile tests.
