U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions during a press conference following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

The mistake came in a transcript of a briefing U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave on Monday.

Trump and Kim Jong Un have now parted ways, since Singapore is 12 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time, and are heading home, but here's a round up of the biggest moments from their time together.

The State Department is declining to release any additional information about the calls.

The mystery behind the documents signed by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as reporters looked on earlier this afternoon is over.

He called them "expensive" and " provocative ", using terms usually employed by the North Koreans in criticizing the drills. President Donald Trump speaks during a press conference in Singapore on June 12, 2018 , in this photo released by the AFP.

It's not entirely clear what was included on the document that they signed but both men appeared happy and Trump made his announcement about denuclearisation.

Current and former USA defence officials expressed concern at the possibility that the United States would unilaterally halt military exercises without an explicit concession from North Korea that lowers the threat from Pyongyang.

They also agreed to recover the remains of prisoners of war, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

"The fact that we have been chosen as the site of the meeting... says something about Singapore's relations with the parties - with America, with North Korea - (and) also our standing in the global community", said Lee.

President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un are signing a joint agreement, although the exact details are still unknown. The US dollar strengthened against its Asian peers in the lead-up to the summit on Tuesday, with equities across the region broadly higher once the summit had begun. "I think that very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen", Trump predicted Saturday.

Rishi Kapoor, often in the news for his tweets, as usual had a fun take on the Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore.

Kim was accompanied at the meeting by vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the WPK Ri Su Yong, and Colonel General No Kwang Chol - one of the three promoted in a recent North Korean military shakeup.
