Trump Meets Kim in Extraordinary Nuclear Summit

European markets remained flat on Tuesday after a landmark meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

The pair held a critical nuclear summit in Singapore, with Trump having left a G7 meeting in Canada early to meet the North Korean leader.

A declaration was signed by the two men which committed Pyongyang to work towards the “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula”.

The two men were photographed shaking hands in front of U.S. and North Korean flags in a complete U-turn from months of angry rhetoric and threats from both sides.

Speaking at a news conference after the signing, Trump also said the U.S. would suspend what he called “war games” with its long-time ally South Korea, a key demand from Pyongyang which regards the military exercises as a threat.

Trump had landed in Greece on his way to the summit with Kim, touching down at the Souda U.S. base on Crete on Sunday to refuel.
