SEOUL -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday boasted of the results of his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore the previous day.

"Great progress was made on the denuclearization of North Korea. Hostages are back home, will be getting the remains of our great heroes back to their families, no missiles shot, no research happening, sites closing," Trump tweeted.

"Got along great with Kim Jong-un who wants to see wonderful things for his country. As I said earlier today: Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace!" he added.

In later postings, Trump thanked Kim for taking a "bold" step toward a "bright future" for his people and said that their Tuesday summit helps the world stay a big step away from potential nuclear catastrophe. "Our unprecedented meeting -- the first between an American President and a leader of North Korea -- proves that real change is possible," he said.

"The World has taken a big step back from potential Nuclear catastrophe! No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research! The hostages are back home with their families," he added. "Thank you to Chairman Kim, our day together was historic!"
