Following his historical meeting in North Korea with Kim Jong Un, US President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that the chairman looked "really well and very healthy" and said that he looks "forward to seeing him again soon."
He continued on Twitter, saying both teams for the US and North Korea will meet to discuss and "work on some solutions" to "very long term and persistent" issues.
"No rush, but I am sure we will ultimately get there!" Trump wrote in his Tweet.
Trump became the first active US president to step foot into North Korea on Sunday. Trump described his the relationship between the two leaders as a "great friendship," in comments to reporters at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea, where Trump, Kim, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met.
"We met and we liked each other from day one and that was very important," he added. During the visit Trump also extended an invitation to the Kim to visit the White House.
This visit comes after two formal summits between the two leaders. The first in Singapore roughly a year ago led to an four-pronged agreement aimed at peaceful relations on the Korean peninsula, including North Korea committing "to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."
The second summit in Hanoi, which took place in February of this year, was cut several hours short, as the two countries could not reach an agreement on denuclearization and the lifting of sanctions.
