The 75-minute documentary said the two countries can write a new history and future if they engage in negotiations with a fair proposal, appropriate attitude and will to solve the problem. The film also said President Trump reaffirmed his willingness to meet with DPRK leader Kim more often in order to bring about fruits in improving the DPRK-US relations.

Yet, it made no mention of denuclearization, unlike an earlier report from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on the summit which said the two sides agreed to keep in close touch with each other for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

During the expanded meeting, it was stressed that the efforts and measures made by the two sides to reduce tensions and build peace on the peninsula have a great meaning in fundamentally shifting the decades-long relationship of mistrust and hostility between the two countries, the film said.

The film presented Kim's 11-day trip in chronological order, from his departure from the Pyongyang train station to the summit with Trump, an official visit to Vietnam and his return home.

It also included footage of the moment the two leaders wrapped up their meeting, when Trump patted Kim on the arm while the DPRK leader smiled. Trump then extended his hand to DPRK Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and Kim's top aide, Kim Yong-chol.

The second meeting between Trump and Kim took place in the Vietnamese capital city of Hanoi on February 27 and 28.
