SINGAPORE, U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has yielded a "lot of progress."

Trump also told reporters that the historic encounter went "better than anybody could have expected."

He made the remarks as he took a stroll with the North Korean leader around the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

The two leaders then moved to a signing ceremony, while it was not known exactly what they would ink.

The unprecedented summit focused on Pyongyang's denuclearization in return for Washington's security assurance.
