North Korea’s state media said Thursday that its leader Kim Jong-un has returned to Pyongyang after “successfully” completing his landmark summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore.

Kim and Trump held their first-ever summit meeting on Singapore’s island of Sentosa on Tuesday and signed a joint statement in which they vowed to build “new” relations, and Kim committed to work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
