U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited each other to visit the United States and North Korea, respectively, and both accepted the invitation, North Korean official news agency KCNA has reported on Wednesday.

“Kim Jong Un invited Trump to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time and Trump invited Kim Jong Un to visit the U.S. The two top leaders gladly accepted each other’s invitation,” KCNA said in a report about the two leaders’ meeting in Singapore on Tuesday.

The two leaders have ended their historic summit by signing an agreement committing to work together to “build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.”

In the joint declaration, Kim pledged to “work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula”; in return, President Trump “commits to provide security guarantees to the DPRK.” (DPRK stands for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the formal name of North Korea.)
