(June 30): The US and North Korea agreed to restart stalled nuclear talks after Donald Trump became the first sitting American president to set foot in North Korea.

Trump hailed ties with Kim Jong Un and invited him to the White House in their third meeting, which the US president initiated in a tweet on Saturday. Kim said he was “surprised” by Trump’s request to meet, and called his short walk into North Korea “a very courageous and determined act.”

Teams from both countries will meet over the next few weeks “and we’ll see what happens,” Trump told reporters after spending a little more than an hour with Kim at the DemilitariSed Zone. South Korean President Moon Jae-in participated in at least part of the meeting.
