President Donald Trump said North Korea’s Kim Jong Un agreed to destroy a “major” missile testing site, but didn’t offer details.

Trump also said he thinks “we’ll probably need another summit”— or at least a second meeting — with Kim as they discuss the North Korean leader’s commitment to denuclearization.

But Trump told reporters in Singapore on Tuesday that he and Kim were able to cover far more ground than he’d expected.

He says, “We’re much further along than I would have thought.”

He added that he really believes North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is going to make good on his promise to denuclearize.

Trump said near the end of a lengthy press conference that he may be wrong about Kim, but he’ll never admit it.

He joked that he “may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey, I was wrong.'” But he says, “I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that.”

Trump appeared to be in a good spirits as he answered questions for almost an hour following a day of meetings with Kim and other North Korean officials.

He ended by congratulating reporters and saying he’s eager to “take it a little bit easy” now that the highly anticipated summit is over.
