The subject of North Korea's human rights abuses was not mentioned, and President Trump also announced that the USA would stop its longstanding joint military exercises with South Korea, which he called "very provocative".
"Well, it was not easy to get here", Kim said.
At least one group of former North Koreans now living in Canada say Trump's new willingness to foster closer ties with Kim are risky, and criticized the president for focusing on denuclearization rather than seeking answers about human rights in the country.
The meeting was the first time a sitting United States president has met North Korea's leader.
He said he would halt USA military exercises in South Korea, something widely seen as a concession.
The president, however, said the sanctions on North Korea for its nuclear tests will remain for now.
What was accomplished during this historic meeting was the signing of a comprehensive document, with the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.
The formal document-signing, which also included an agreement to work to repatriate remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action from the Korean War, followed a series of meetings at a luxury Singapore resort. "I am hoping for denuclearization and a peace agreement and also for North Korea's economy to open up".
"It marks the beginning of a still long and arduous journey, but we are hopeful because the start has been very positive, very good", he said.
China, North Korea's only major diplomatic and economic ally, also said the meeting created a "new history".
Primaries Show Republicans 'Are the Party of President Trump' He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump wrote in a tweet Tuesday afternoon, less than three hours before polls closed in SC . As South Carolina's governor, Sanford famously ducked the public eye for several days to spend time with an Argentine woman.
"He's denuking the whole place, and he's going to start very quickly. I mean, they're going to be getting rid of sites". We are sitting with (National Security Advisor) John Bolton next week to go over the details, to get this stuff done.
Bloomberg reported that Trump's departure time was moved up in response to Kim's plans to leave Singapore shortly after the summit.
Aware that the eyes of the world were on a moment many people never expected to see, Kim said many of those watching would think it was a scene from a "science fiction movie".
Trump said he was very proud of what took place today and the two leaders would "take care of a very unsafe problem for the world".
"I was shocked when he called the exercises 'provocative, ' a very unlikely word to be used by a United States president", the official said.
"Well, he is very talented", Mr Trump said.
The city-state of Singapore, a mercantile nation that has maintained robust ties with both sides throughout the years, hosted the two leaders at the luxurious Capella Hotel in Sentosa island.
The two leaders held one-on-one meeting for around 45-minutes with just translators present.
Trump showed the video at a news conference Tuesday.
The announcement has provoked displeasure in Seoul, but it is music to the ear of the North Korean regime, which has managed to secure concessions from the United States without necessarily agreeing to a clear denuclearisation plan. They were then joined by small delegations of advisers for a working lunch.
Charges have also been brought against 13 Russian nationals, three Kremlin-linked companies, a California man and a Dutch lawyer. Special counsel Robert Mueller recently accused Manafort of witness tampering.

Another, much bigger row then erupted with France, which blasted the "cynicism and irresponsibility" of Italy's actions. This week, Italian and Maltese officials denied entry for the Aquarius , a ship carrying more than 600 Libyan migrants.
Vladimir Putin was delivered a handwritten note by Kim Jong-un by a North Korean official during a meeting earlier today . The statement contradicts the North's view that the process agreed at this week's summit would be phased and reciprocal.
Higher prices are also good for oil producers in Texas and North Dakota, where the shale oil boom creates lots of drilling jobs. US bank Morgan Stanley said OPEC and its partners had "largely achieved their stated objective of rebalancing the oil market".

Trump and Kim held the unprecedented meeting in Singapore, after which they signed a joint document praised by both leaders. Japanese news media have reported that officials are seeking a meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Kim Jong Un .
The Black Manta helmet looks quite nifty, however, and I like how Wan has found a grounded way for the character to make sense. The film also stars Amber Heard as Princess Mera, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna , and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus.
It's an action movie that takes place mainly underwater, something that could either be brilliant or absolutely awful . Theorizing aside though, the long-awaited first image of the famous Black Manta looks pretty cool.
