United States, President Donald Trump tweeted saying that the world had avoided a major catastrophic disaster, a day after the historic summit.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met each other over the course of two meetings in Singapore and had ended the day by signing a landmark document that made North Korea commit to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula. Hailing the outcome of the summit, Trump took to Twitter to highlight the points agreed upon. 

"The World has taken a big step back from potential Nuclear catastrophe! No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research! The hostages are back home with their families. Thank you to Chairman Kim, our day together was historic!" he wrote.

"There is no limit to what NoKo (North Korea) can achieve when it gives up its nuclear weapons and embraces commerce & engagement w/ the world," he wrote. 

"Chairman Kim has before him the opportunity to be remembered as the leader who ushered in a glorious new era of security & prosperity for his citizens!"
