SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Tuesday his summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in June provided geopolitical stability and that he expects more progress.

Kim began official talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Pyongyang, crediting him with making Kim’s “historic” summit in Singapore with Trump possible.
