The two leaders met for over an hour in the morning, accompanied by key aides, before spending some time in the afternoon one on one. The two leaders later signed a joint declaration of their countries’ commitment to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. They also agreed to pursue a trilateral summit with the United States or a four-party summit including China to discuss replacing the current armistice agreement with a peace treaty this year, formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War.
