US President Donald Trump made a stunning concession to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday about halting military exercises, pulling a surprise at a summit that baffled allies, military officials and lawmakers from his own Republican Party

During the meeting, Trump let Kim peek inside the Cadillac presidential limo known as the Beast, and for a second it looked as if Kim might climb inside.
Trump arrived before Kim at the Capella hotel where the summit was held.

While there are many official photographs of the North Korean leader, this appears to be the first time he has posed for a casual selfie.

Highlighting the change in tone, North Korea's state-run news agency reported early on Wednesday that Kim and Trump had accepted invitations to visit each other's countries. No dates were disclosed
The joint statement made no mention of the sanctions on North Korea and there was no reference to formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War, which killed millions of people and ended in a truce.
But it said the two sides had agreed to recover the remains of prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action, so they could be repatriated. The Pentagon said on Tuesday that nearly 7,700 US military personnel are unaccounted for from the Korean War.
