Talks between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un produced few specific new commitments by Pyongyang to surrender its nuclear weapons, pushing any details on timing and verification of disarmament to future negotiations.


Following an unprecedented meeting between the leaders of the two countries that Mr. Trump said had led to a personal bond, both sides pledged to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and to begin high-level negotiations at the earliest possible date.


But the document, which Mr. Trump described as “very comprehensive,” provided almost no particulars on how to make the denuclearization process quick, verifiable or irreversible—often stated U.S. goals.


In many ways, the language echoed an agreement signed between North and South Korea in April. It didn’t codify Pyongyang’s unilateral moratorium on nuclear and missile tests.


Still, the agreement forestalls the likelihood of any immediate hostilities, and Mr. Trump signaled Tuesday that the deal marked the beginning of a diplomatic process that is intended to bring an end to more than 60 years of enmity.


Trump and Kim would “meet again...many times,” the U.S. president said on Tuesday, telling reporters that he would invite Mr. Kim to visit the White House.


Mr. Trump added that their agreement would “take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world.”


Perhaps the most important outcome was to open a channel between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim and set the stage for more high-level negotiations over thorny issues like the pace of North Korea’s denuclearization and a verification process that the declaration says are slated to begin as soon as possible.


The shift to dialogue is a stark contrast to the situation last year, when a series of North Korean weapons tests prompted increasingly bellicose language from the U.S. president. The two leaders taunted each other and threatened nuclear attack.
