It was a moment in history - an American President and a North Korean Dictator, standing side by side and then taking a step forward towards peace. The president even inviting Kim Jong-un back to the white house. ABC's Tara Palmeri reports.

A five-hour meeting between president trump and Kim Jong-un, ending with a promise. "I've decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change," says Kim Jong-Un. President Trump forming a friendship with the North Korean leader and then signing a landmark agreement. "We're going to have a very special bond. It was intensive, it worked out far better than anyone could have predicted." In that letter, President Trump agreed to provide security guarantees to North Korea in exchange for Kim's "Firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula." The president sitting down with ABC's chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. "I think they he really wants to de-nuke, without that there's nothing to discuss." Not at top of the agenda, human rights. "I believe it's a tough situation over there, there's no question about that. I  think ultimately we'll agree to something."

It all started with that historic handshake, and then the smiles and pats on the back. President trump leading Kim Jong-un into that private one-on-one where he looked into his eyes and came out saying. "Really fantastic meeting. A lot of progress." Their one-on-one, lasting about 40 minutes and then ending the day with a signing, and an invite to the White House.

President Trump said the details of the deal will be worked out over the coming week. Even though the agreement lacks the word verification he said they will verify that Kim is denuclearizing. He added that quote scientifically it takes a long time to denuclearize, Tara Palmeri ABC news.
