The parties signed a joint document, in which Pyongyang committed to denuclearising the Korean Peninsula in return for US security guarantees. However, negotiations after the summit have yet to gain positive progress.
At the second summit, the two countries are expected to pass a joint declaration outlining the DPRK’s specific steps on denuclearisation and reciprocal US moves, including a rollback of several sanctions.
