Singapore City, June 13 (IBNS): Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has congratulated US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un over their meeting.

The meeting between the two leaders took place on Tuesday in Singapore.

Congratulating the leaders, Loong tweeted: "The DPRK-US Singapore Summit has concluded with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald J. Trump signing a joint statement. It is a crucial first move in the long journey towards lasting peace and stability on a denuclearised Korean Peninsula, which would benefit our region and the rest of the world."

He said: " I wrote to Mr Kim and Mr Trump to congratulate them on a successful summit. Singapore is honoured to have played host. We join the international community in celebrating this outcome, and wishing both the US and DPRK success in implementing this agreement."

He appreciated servicemen and public officers and further said: "My thanks to all our servicemen, public officers and their teams who have worked on this summit. You did an outstanding job, making sure each component of the summit was well taken care of. Thanks also to Singaporeans for showing the world what we can do. Thank you all! – LHL."

Ending all dilemma, Kim and Trump met in Singapore on Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday described his bond with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his country as "special".

Trump said this after signing a joint statement with Kim at the US-North Korea Summit, which was held in Singapore on Tuesday.

Addressing a joint press conference, Trump said: "We developed a very special bond."

Kim on Tuesday assured that the denuclearisation process will begin soon.

During the brief media interaction, Kim said: "The world will see a major change."

Trump, on the other hand, was found praising the US' new friendly ties with North Korea.
2017 witnessed US President Donald Trump slamming North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as the Asian nation continued to conduct several of its missile tests, teasing world peace and tranquillity and often threatening to trigger a war.

The situation became far tensed when North Korea tested an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) that the nation said was capable of striking US mainland.

The United Nations Security Council imposed strong new sanctions against the Asian nation after its Nov 29 launch of a nuclear-capable weapon.

Trump and North Korea continued to exchange barbs earlier this year too.
