“President Trump concluded a historic meeting with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, on Tuesday, saying that denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula would begin ‘very quickly,'” as The New York Times is reporting.

“In a televised ceremony held in Singapore, the two leaders signed a document that Mr. Trump called ‘comprehensive,’ though its contents were not immediately disclosed. ‘We had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind,’ Mr. Kim said at the ceremony, adding that ‘the world will see a major change.’
