Malacañang said on Wednesday that “history has been written” in the aftermath of the summit between the leaders of the United States and North Korea and that this augured well for world peace.

“We welcome the landmark summit between US President Donald Trump and [North Korean] leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said.

“This development, which has underscored in the strongest terms the value of diplomacy and peaceful dialogue, augurs well for the peace, security and stability in the region and the world,” Roque said in a statement.
