After the meeting at the White House, the North Korean envoy was invited to lunch at the State Department by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

On June 12, 2018, Trump and Kim held their first meeting in Singapore, where a peaceful solution to the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula was discussed. 

"The way to come here was not easy. The past falters in our names and the old prejudices and practices work as obstacles on our way forward. But we overcame all of them," Kim said at the Singapore summit. 

On Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Trump's meeting with the vice chairman was productive and that the two sides will keep up the dialogue.
