U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un accepted mutual invitations to visit each other's countries at the Singapore summit, North Korean news agency KCNA reported on Wednesday.

As part of the growing detente, the KCNA report also said that Kim had invited Trump to visit Pyongyang, an offer that the US president had accepted.

President Donald Trump sold his nuclear agreement with North Korea on Tuesday as different from - and better than - any that's gone before.

For good measure, Trump again called Xi a close friend and thanked him for China's role in strengthening sanctions against North Korea.

Answering a series of questions from the floor, Trump said that the U.S. will stop "war games" in South Korea, and later elaborated that he was speaking of their joint military exercises, held annually since the 1970s.

The White House said the daylong summit would also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders.

Speaking later as he flew out of Singapore bound for the United States territory of Guam - towards which Pyongyang past year threatened to lob missiles - Trump said he meant to hold North Korea to its word on denuclearization.

He instead suggested Trump's comment about suspending military exercises was "part of the negotiating".

"For North Korea, they got exactly what they wanted".

Trump's upside-down calculus, which allowed strategic adversaries China and North Korea to gain at the expense of steadfast allies, echoed the tussle that erupted at last week's Group of Seven meetings in Quebec.

"The past doesn't have to be the future", a narrator says as the video showed the demilitarised zone that has separated North and South since the end of the Korean War in 1953. Pompeo flies to Seoul on Wednesday for meetings with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts before heading to Beijing for a few hours to do the same with Chinese leaders.

After a day filled with smiles and handshakes watched around the world, the U.S. "committed to provide security guarantees" to North Korea, while Pyongyang committed to "work towards" denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

But that language wasn't mentioned in a joint declaration signed by Trump and Kim, and no timetable was set for North Korea to eventually give up nuclear weapons. "And then goes on to say that someday he'd like to get our troops out of Asia, that's an astonishing development, and one that will add no leverage for [Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's] follow-up efforts - quite the contrary".

South Korea, meanwhile, appeared to have been blindsided by Trump's change of heart on war games.

He said in Toronto: "I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president". "I watched him. and truly believe he may be "punch-drunk"," he said .

If confirmed, the reported deal could be seen as a concession by Trump since USA officials - and the president himself - had called for the North to take swift and clear disarmament measures before receiving any rewards.

Trump expressed his intention to halt U.S.

"North Korea is a small and weak country surrounded by big powers and that has made North Koreans paranoid about their own national security and develop nuclear weapons, " said Yoon, speaking on Bloomberg Television.
