The documents reportedly say:

“President Trump held a first meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore today, June the 12th. President Trump and Kim Jong Un had a comprehensive, in-depth and sincere exchange of opinions of the issues related to the establishment of the new US-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean peninsula.
