United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday said his one-on-one meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was "very, very good" and they have an "excellent relationship", according to media reports.

Trump and Kim signed a “comprehensive" document following a historic summit in Singapore aimed at the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

Before signing what Trump described as a “comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting “and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change."

Trump said he had formed a “very special bond" with Kim and that relationship with North Korea would be very different.

The two leaders met at the resort island of Sentosa along with their respective translators earlier in the day and shared a historic handshake as they met for the first time.

Post this summit, investors will now focus on policy meeting of the US Federal Reserve, which is expected to raise rates. The outcome of the policy meeting is likely to be announced late on Wednesday, June 13, 2018.
