VIDEO: Trump and Kim historic 13-second handshake in Singapore

US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un put their differences aside as both leaders met in Singapore to forge a new alliance.

Trump suggested an agreement was at hand when he told reporters there would be an afternoon signing ceremony. But he didn’t specify what the document would be, CNN reports.

The two men both intent on making history greeted each other with extended hands in front of a row of US and North Korean flags, a previously unthinkable sight that reflects a new chapter in the two countries’ acrimonious relationship.

“We had a really fantastic meeting. A lot of progress,” Trump told reporters three hours later after sitting for a series of talks and a working lunch. “Really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected.”
