After US President Donald Trump declared that the summit meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un had gone better than expected, he said they were "going right now for a signing."
The nearly four hours of talks aimed at bringing about Pyongyang's nuclear disarmament.
Trump didn't provide more details on the signing, but said: "We had a really fantastic meeting, a lot of progress, really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected-top of the line."
They started the day by greeting each other before a row of alternating U.S. and North Korean flags. After a lengthy handshake, the two leaders exchanged a few words. "Nice to meet you, Mr. President," Kim told Trump.
The men posed side by side for news cameras before settling in for a 38-minute, one-on-one meeting. They then brought in top advisers for another two hours of talks, before sharing a lunch that included prawn cocktail, beef short rib and vanilla ice cream.
"We're going to have a great discussion," Trump said. "It's my honor and we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt."
Kim said that "old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles in our way forward, but we overcame all of them and we are here today."
