Admittedly, Trump said Kim was very pleased with the development.
It futher sees the USA and North Korea agree to "establish new relations", and 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula'.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean officials would hold follow-up negotiations "at the earliest possible date", the statement said.
