President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document declaring that Kim’s government would work toward the “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” and committing to a “lasting and stable peace.”

In exchange, Trump committed to provide unspecified “security guarantees” to Kim.

The two adversaries also agreed to establish new relations “in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity” and said they would work on recovering “POW/MIA remains.”
