India on Tuesday welcomed the historic summit that took place between United States President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong un in Singapore.

"This is a positive development. India has always supported all efforts to bring about peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and diplomacy. We hope that the outcomes of the US-DPRK Summit will be implemented, thus paving the way for lasting peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula," a statement issued by the ministry of external affairs read.

The MEA statement added, "We also hope that the resolution of the Korean Peninsula issue will take into account and address our concerns about proliferation linkages extending to India's neighbourhood."

The meeting came after months of deliberations between two countries over the time and venue of the summit.

Both the leaders signed a joint agreement, according to which Kim committed for 'complete denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula', as per media reports.

Prior to the signing of the comprehensive document, both the leaders had a working lunch and walked around Capella, where they held a bilateral meeting in the morning. -- ANI
