Donald Trump has become the first sitting US president to enter North Korea in history as he shakes hands with the country's leader, Kim Jong-un.  

Although critics dismiss the event as political theatre, many say it is setting the scene for future relations and talks.

The negotiations will be part of an effort to convince North Korea to abandon its controversial nuclear program and build relations with the country, something no other US leader has managed to do.

As Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat down together, Kim said he was 'surprised' by the open invitation

As Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat down together, Kim said he was "surprised" by the open invitation Trump issued over Twitter yesterday.

"I was very surprised to hear about your offer on the tweet and only late in the afternoon, I was able to confirm your invitation.

"I had wanted to meet you again and especially for both Koreas; this place is a sign of the unfortunate history of the past."

"So for our two Koreas to be able to have this opportunity for me to meet you here is very significant.

"It means that we can feel at ease and meet each other with positive mindsets. I believe that this will have a positive influence in all our discussions in the future," Kim said.

"I'll invite him to the White House right now," Trump said.

No North Korean leader has ever visited the US; it would be a colossal diplomatic achievement for Kim.
