those documents will come in a press conference later this morning. >> trump and came came face-to-face elier tod singapore, shaking hands as they began their historic meeting. i u.s. president has met with a north korean leader. the two leaders appearing cordial in front of the cameras after months of heated rhetoric and insult trading. but it was a very different tune today with president trump expressing optimism for positive relations going forward. today's summit included not just the one-on-one with tru amp kim, but a bilateral discussion with the delegation from both sides. for more on this historic moment, let's go to nbc white house correspondent kelly o'dolngape. kellooing. >> good morning, phillip and frances. from little rocket man to very talented man, both the words of president trump describing kim jong-un. what a change in their relationship. here in singapore, the two leaders met. there were many handshake, conversations, time with just the two leaders by themselves with their interpreters. prent trp and kim jong-un.en a e
of their top advisers. a working lunch, and then what was sort of billed as a surprise. official sched the two leaders entered a room with pens, signing a document that president trump calls very, veryomprehensi about way forward betwn the countries. through his interpreter, kim jong-un said that he was ready to let go of the past and believed that this could be a new relationship. president trump was very upbeat, describing what he says is an opportunity for the two countries to work differently in the future. he also said he'd be willing to see jong-un come to the white house, and he expects they will meet again and again. this has been what is described as a historic summit there are also questions abo united states has elevated north korea, and specifically, kim jong-un to a level beyond where he should be given the record of human rights violations, and the isolation and nuclear weapons
and threats that have come from kim jong-un. t y ofhe moment, the stage craft was all about putting these two men on largely equal footing with the flag side by side, the handshakes, and now the question of their agreement something with teeth? will it have substance? will it lead to denuclearization? those are questions to be answered over time. phillip, frances? >> kelly, thank you. >> of course, this historic summit is drawing attention from leaders all across the globe. but perhaps especially so in south korea, which has maintained a tense relationship with its northern borders for decades. janis mackey frayer is live. good morning there. >> good morning, phillip. south korean president moon jae-in has been watching this very closely, parsing by now the document signed by president trump and kim jong-un. the four points being that the
u.s. and north korea commit to relations, very imporntly, that they will join their efforts to create a stable peace regime. the third point being that they will affirm the april 27th agreement that was signed between moon and kim in their summit. and then lastly, that the u.s. and north korea will commit to repatriating the remains of prisoners of war. it's that third point on reaffirming the agreement of april 27th. this was not a separate declaration between the u.s. and north korea toward complete denuclearization. this is important context. it's their affirmation of the commitment to denuclearization that already existed. so what's missing from this document is the complete verifiable, irreversible aspect of that denuclearization, a term that neither side has yesterday to define. phillip? >> and we will soon see, janis.
thank you. let's take it back to washington now and what the north korea summit means on capitol hill. lawmakers have been split on whether or not they believe the meet willing be suessful, and any potential agreement in those documents may have to go straight to congress. let's go to nbc's tracie potts with more on this. tracy, good morning. >> hi there, frances. good morning. the question here in washington isow afntd when will lawmakers get their hands on this, what will their reaction be, and what role will they play in interpreting it, determining what this actually means for the united states. it is not a treaty, so it will not require a 2/3 vote of the senate as a treaty would. it is more of a general agreement. and as janis just said, it reaffirms an earlier agreement, leaving open to some degree for lawmakers here, interpretation how how that will play out. also the question this morning, how will this play in north korea. >> the north koreans have a state-run media. they can splice that footage any
way they want. so they just got the president of the united states of america saying it was an honor to sit down with kim jong-un. his grandfather, his father, never achieved that. >> reporter: expectations were low for the summit. take a look at this. the latest nbc news/wall street journal poll before the summit of what were the expectations for success here. a fair deal for both sides? only 17%. no deal? 26%. so they have come out with some sort of agreement now. it will be up to lawmakers and others, the public here in the united states to determine what that deal really means. frances? >> we'll find out more about those documents thatter were signed. tracy, thank you. developing this morning, four children and a suspect are dead after a nearly day-long standoff in florida. he barricaded himself in an apartment after shooting an officer. he fatally took his own life. police found the suspect, 35-year-old gary lindsey in a
