Singapore City, June 12 (IBNS): Creating history, US President Donald Trump on Tuesday met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Following the handshake, both the leaders started their one-to-one meeting.

The meeting took place between the two leaders after months of negotiations and dilemma.

The meeting took place at a hotel in Singapore.

This was for the first time that a  sitting US president has ever met a North Korean leader.

Trump said he wants to have an "excellent relationship" with Kim.

He said by working together with Kim they will solve big problems.

Kim reportedly said in the meeting that this summit was 'good for the peace'.

Trump arrived in Singapore for the meeting in Canada.

He attended the G7 Summit in Canada.

Bitter previous US-North Korea relationship:

The move appears to be a major breakthrough after months of barbs exchanged between North Korea and the US.

Fresh development in the relationship between North Korea, South Korea and the US began recently when a North Korea  delegation was invited to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

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.

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.
