North Korea has celebrated the Trump-Kim summit as a great win for the country, with state media reporting that the US intends to lift sanctions.
The two leaders met on Tuesday, signing a brief declaration on denuclearisation and reducing tensions.
President Donald Trump said afterwards that sanctions would remain in place for now, but would be lifted once “nukes are no longer a factor”.
He also announced an unexpected end to US-South Korea military drills.
The move – long demanded by Pyongyang – has been seen as major concession to North Korea and appeared to take US allies in the region by surprise.
