US President Donald Trump made several announcements upon his return to Washington after the historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!" Trump tweeted.
He further underlined that before he took office, former president Barack Obama had been calling North Korea "our biggest and most dangerous problem" and US citizens were scared of a possible war with the nuclear power.
These statements were made when Trump returned on to US soil after holding an historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore the day before.
During the summit, both sides signed an agreement outlining the two countries' commitment to work toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. Trump also gave North Korea security assurances and indicated he would suspend military exercises with South Korea.
The North Korean leader noted that if Washington keeps taking "sincere steps to build trust," Pyongyang will also take "measures of goodwill."
During the meeting, the two leaders agreed to continue the dialogue and accepted each other's invitations to visit North Korea and the United States.
